Crest Nicholson’s Tadpole Garden Village development in Swindon has been announced as a finalist in the ‘Outstanding Placemaking’ category at the Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2017.
The Sunday Times British Homes Awards recognise the excellence of architects, designers and developers working across the residential property sector, and Tadpole Garden Village overcame fierce competition from across the country to be recognised as one of the best developments in the UK.
The development will ultimately comprise a collection of 1,855 homes, offering house types ranging from one-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom family homes. Upon its completion, Tadpole Garden Village will offer many amenities to the local community including new schools, a community centre and a public house.
Tadpole Garden Village is a joint development managed by Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects and Crest Nicholson South West.
Andrew Dobson, Managing Director at Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects, said: “Sustainability has been at the heart of Tadpole Garden Village’s design from the beginning, with all homes built to a high standard of sustainability.
“The majority of our 350-acre site will become stunning scenery for residents to enjoy, with 2,700 new trees and 26km of hedgerow being planted to complement the areas of ancient woodland. The site will also be home to a 99-acre Nature Park, sown with wildflower seeds as part of the ‘Coronation Meadows’ campaign to restore the UKs threatened wildflower meadows.
“We’ve worked hard to ensure that Tadpole Garden Village is a thoughtfully designed and sustainable development. To be named a finalist in the ‘Outstanding Placemaking’ category of these national awards is a real testament to the success of the scheme.”
