28 October 1998

The award was presented by Gillian Shephard MP, Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions at the NHTPC's annual conference in Eastbourne.

Accepting the award David Everett, Managing Director of Countryside In Partnership PLC said "This award is undoubtedly an endorsement of the efforts of all of the Partners, particularly the residents of New Kingshold, to create a new balanced community based on traditional homes in a conventional London street pattern which fully integrates into the wider South Hackney Community."

The former New Kingshold Estate comprised 771 properties, most of which were flats. Building work started in October 1996 with the first phase of 46 new homes for rent completed in November 1997. To date 190 new homes for rent, shared ownership and sale have been completed. 70% of the new homes are 2 & 3 storey houses with gardens.

The Partnership's commitment is not just to provide new homes with gardens. Community facilities including a new Community Centre, Elderly Day Care Centre, Urban Park, Training Centre and Sports Centre are being provided and will be available for use by the wider South Hackney Neighbourhood.

Another key objective of the Partnership is to secure long-term regeneration through a comprehensive programme of Training and Employment Initiatives for local people.
