Pioneering Scottish housing developer, Cruden Homes, and the UK’s leading social enterprise, Places for People, have received the prestigious ‘Development of the Year’ title at the Homes for Scotland Awards 2023 which took place at the EICC on Friday. Recognising Scotland’s most innovative home building projects, the awards ceremony shone a light on some of the greatest achievements that the Scottish construction sector has seen this year.
Developed by Cruden Homes, in partnership with Places for People, Longniddry Village in East Lothian was awarded its highly sought-after title of ‘Development of the Year - Large’. The judging panel deemed Longniddry Village as a high-quality place for people to live, exceptionally designed and meeting customer needs, whilst also bringing great economic benefits to the local area.
Longniddry Village has grown to become an integrated part of one of East Lothian’s distinctive rural communities. Offering a traditional village feel with close access to the exciting ‘buzz’ of Edinburgh’s city centre, the development provides attractive and flexible homes for households of all sizes. Judges were particularly impressed by the use of fine detailing and traditional materials, such as slate and clay roofing tiles, so that the new homes blend with their surroundings.
Hazel Davies, Sales and Marketing Director of Cruden Homes, said: “After receiving the ‘Home Builder of the Year’ title at the Homes for Scotland Awards last year, we’re thrilled to have received another award this year.
“Longniddry Village is a particularly exciting development which is made unique by its more traditionally designed exteriors combined with modern, spacious, 21st century living. Our aim was to create a fully encompassing neighbourhood which people and families could enjoy together, helping them to build connections and embrace the local area. We’re delighted that our community values and attention to detail have shone through in this development.”
Allison Sutherland, Regional Sales and Marketing Director - Scotland, Places for People, said: “Longniddry Village is a unique development and community that we are incredibly proud of, this award is a testament to the development.
“Longniddry Village is a great example of the benefits of working closely in partnership with organisations who have a shared vision of creating thriving communities. For us, creating homes where community matters – communities with social and sustainable values at their core - is our goal. With Cruden Homes, we have been able to create incredible places for people to call home and give them the opportunity to become part of a vibrant and prosperous local community. We are delighted that this has been recognised at the Homes for Scotland awards.”Back to Latest News
