NHF award Sept 2018
United Communites wins a National Award

12 September 2018

United Communities, Bristol & Bath Regional Capital (BBRC), the Cheyne Social Property Impact Fund (Cheyne) and HAB Housing were delighted to be winner of a prestigious housing award for the new site delivering 161 mixed-tenure homes in the Southmead area of the City.
The judges from the National Housing Awards credited the development as having met the following criteria while in planning:
• Excellent consultation with the local community and consideration with the local environment.
• Meeting needs of the local market, local strategy requirements and responding to the local demands.
• The scheme showed a strong commitment to environmental sustainability whilst remaining affordable for future residents.
• The homes have design features which make the most of the site potential as well as showing sensitivity to its neighbourhoods and surrounding area.
This new development started in July 2018 and is set to transform the former Dunmail Primary School site into much needed housing in North Bristol. From 2019 we will provide 161 houses and apartments with a wide range of tenures available. The Cheyne Social Property Impact Fund and BBRC, will offer 61 homes including ethically rented homes, key worker rented properties and a unique rent-to-buy offering. United Communities will deliver 77 homes that include affordable rented homes, and shared ownership homes. The Cheyne Social Property Fund will also offer 23 homes for sale.
The partnership for the funding is a turning point for UK housing as it’s the first time that a housing association, a community investment company and a private investor have come together to create an inclusive housing scheme and marks the introduction of the UK’s first private sector rent-to-buy model.
