Newman Place wins Best New Development in the South!

We’re delighted to have won ‘Best New Development in the South’ at the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards 2022, for Newman Place. Now in its 13th year, the prestigious awards recognise housebuilders and housing associations for their dedication to first time buyers.

Newman Place is one of the south’s most impressive new developments, designed to respect and reflect the site’s heritage, biodiversity and natural landscape, bridging the gap between the site’s notable history, and the exciting future it offers its residents.

A collection of 270 homes, from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom houses, Newman Place offers a remarkable breadth of homes for Shared Ownership, giving first-time buyers at every life stage an opportunity to get on to the property ladder.

The site is home to a new waterway, children’s play area and walkway for residents and the wider community providing a footpath along the river, as well as a cycle route connecting to the nearby Science Park. Homes are set in tree-lined boulevards, and each look out onto green space, whilst every apartment has a balcony.

In a nod to sustainability, an emerging priority for first time buyers, Newman Place’s features include energy-efficient building fabric and insulation, high-efficiency heating and double-glazed windows, low-energy lighting and solar panels; all helping to lower carbon emissions by at least 20%.

We’re also delighted that alongside Newman Place, three of our other developments were shortlisted at the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards 2022. These include The Folium, shortlisted for Best Show Home, The Switch, shortlisted for Best First Time Buyer Apartment, and The Lanes at Thorn Fields for Best First Time Buyer Family Home.
