The East of England Awards for Planning Excellence celebrate projects and people who have helped create exceptional places and improved the lives of those who live and work there; highlighting how planning and planners work to create a safe, healthy and sustainable future.
Steven Rose, Managing Director of Rose, comments; ‘We are delighted that our development at Summers Park has received the Highly Commended Award and our thanks goes to all of those that helped realise the vision. A special thank you to David Rose at A D P planning who put our development forward. We take great care in how our schemes are designed and welcome and encourage local stakeholder engagement in order to deliver sustainable, well thought developments that the local community can be proud of.
The site at Lawford was identified as an emerging site allocation, which led to constructive engagement with all key stakeholders and local residents to develop a community-led concept and vision for the site that comprised: 150 new homes, including affordable starter homes to be delivered by a locally created housing trust; 700 sqm of office floorspace; 2.6ha of Community Open Space; an off-road school bus park for the Manningtree High School; and a Multi-Use Games Area.
The Highly commended award was for the proactive and positive engagement process undertaken by Rose in the planning, consultation and design stages.
Rose first started building new homes in the 1890s and the original values of quality, integrity, trust and care are as true today as they were then. They blend traditional craftmanship with modern design and the latest technology to deliver new homes that are built with care.
