2018 Housing Design Awards Update
Housing Design Awards: Calling for outstanding projects
Every year the Housing Design Awards are demonstrating best practice in housing design and by doing so effectively establish new standards in what good sustainable housing looks like. Wood for Good are proud to sponsor the awards again in 2018. You can help drive the agenda for building better homes for the future by submitting your scheme or project by 14th March 2018.
One of the most robust housing award schemes in the country, the Housing Design Awards are celebrating their 70th birthday this year. An opportunity to point out the uniqueness of this highly acclaimed institution:
· the only awards promoted by departments of Government and their agencies
· linking national and local government agencies with all major built environment professions
· judging panel composed of planners, surveyors, architects and researchers reflects the need for ideas that are both innovative and replicable.
The Housing Design Awards are the only programme to recognise schemes once they have planning approval but before they may be built or occupied. This reflects the awards focus on finding the latest ideas for how to serve a range of emerging markets, such as the Private Rented Sector and the search for liveable higher density.
Some of these schemes will not be published in professional journals for years but their innovation needs to be promoted now…

Housing Design Awards Update
The deadline for entries is 7th March 2014 (midday). The awards ceremony is currently scheduled for July in central London (date, venue and timings tbc).
• The Housing Design Awards, highlighted in the Government’s Housing Strategy as to how it will champion design and innovation during this Parliament, are back for a 66th year.
• A multidisciplinary team of 16 judges undertakes a desktop review before visiting their shortlist of 30+ schemes, considering everything from a development’s build quality to the resident experience to the role of the local authority. Judges include GLA deputy Mayor for housing Rick Blakeway, the president of the RICS Louise Brooke-Smith, and architects David Levitt OBE and Richard Lavington of Maccreanor Lavington.
• This year, for the first time, the awards will recognise innovative design for homes in the private rented sector.Launching the PRS award, Housing Minister Kris Hopkins said: “We are already seeing new schemes being built in Southampton and Manchester, thanks to our £1 billion Build to Rent scheme, and I hope these, and other developments like them, get the recognition they deserve in this new category.”
• Entries are made online and scheme details and images are collated in a compendium of entries that is used internally at sponsoring partners, such as the Homes and Communities Agency and the GLA, to track design patterns in schemes built with their grant support or on their land.

Housing Design Awards in England
1 Mar 2012 : deadline for entries
Housing Design Awards, the national programme supported by Government and the industry’s key professions and organisations, enters its 64th year with two new Awards partners.
The unique tradition of sending at least 10 judges drawn from planning, surveying, architecture, housebuilding and government to visit shortlisted schemes anywhere in England will be boosted with a judge from each of the Design Council- CABE and the Greater London Authority.
The Mayor’s housing adviser Richard Blakeway will help select London’s winners with an eye on the Mayor’s Housing Design Guide, as well as the 500,000 visitors visiting London for the Olympics. The Awards will publish a special app detailing every scheme entered in London’s 33 boroughs, both ‘Completed’ developments and ‘Projects’ (those with planning permission but not yet occupied) to promote the best of the capital’s new homes.
As before views of residents, planning authorities and local communities living in and around Winning Completed schemes will be filmed for a high profile Awards ceremony in June. The films are then widely distributed.
The programme, running since 1948, is a coalition of professions, the RICS representing surveyors, RIBA architects and RTPI planners. The trio are allied with the NHBC as the standards-setting body protecting buyers and the Home Builders Federation representing 80% of the supply of new homes.
This industry-led coalition is fully endorsed by the Department for Communities and Local Government, and the Housing Minister the Right Honourable Grant Shapps and supported by the Homes and Communities Agency.
The Awards open for entries from 24 January and closing deadline is 1 March. Full details can be found at www.hdawards.org.
