Housing shortlisted for national awards

New developments raise the roof

Two housing developments in the Borough have been shortlisted in the Inside Housing Development Awards 2019.

Leah Gardens at Woodside Avenue, which was jointly developed by Eastleigh Borough Council and VIVID Housing Association through their Aspect Partnership, has been shortlisted in the ‘Best build for rent development’ category. All the

homes were provided for rent with a mix of 36 affordable homes and 58 homes for market rent.

The second development at North Stoneham was submitted by VIVID and has been shortlisted

in two categories namely; Best affordable housing development (in construction) and Best development (100+ homes).

Aspect Building Communities is an exciting partnership which includes Eastleigh Borough Council and VIVID. Leah Gardens was the first development to be completed by the Aspect Partnership. The new company works with a number of partners to help bring forward housing developments across the Borough to meet local housing needs and ensure we get the sort of development that is best for the Borough. It also provides ground breaking ways to help local people seeking housing including lifetime market-rent tenancies and ‘Rent to Own’ schemes.

Inside Housing is the leading trade magazine for the housing industry and their awards will be held on 27 November.
