Keyte Gardens scoops Best Green Scheme national award
It’s official! Warwickshire Rural Housing Association’s Keyte Gardens development in Wootton Wawen is the Best Green Scheme UK-wide.
The ground-breaking development, which was officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal last month, has scooped the title in the 24housing Awards 2018.
The sixth 24housing awards ceremony took place last night (18th October) at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, attended by Derrick Dyas, WRHA Chairman; Richard Mugglestone, WRHA Chief Executive; WRHA Board members; Councillor Daren Pemberton from Stratford-on-Avon District Council; Sarah Brooke-Taylor, Rural Housing Enabler at Warwickshire Rural Community Council and Dominic Kramer, Director of Morton Wykes Kramer Architects.
The awards, which celebrate the very best the housing sector has to offer, saw a record number of entries from housing providers UK-wide. WRHA beat off stiff competition from some top names to scoop the award.
Keyte Gardens is the first Passivhaus development of ultra-low energy affordable homes in Warwickshire. The 14 homes have been built to the rigorous Passivhaus standard to make them as energy efficient as possible and new tenants are already reaping the benefits of lower fuel bills.
