Date posted 28/09/2022

We are thrilled to announce that Robin Place, White Road, Chatham has won the Residential Major – 11 to 49 units category at this year’s Medway Design and Regeneration Awards.

The development features twenty, two-bedroom affordable family homes which have transformed the local area, reducing anti-social behaviour and raising the standard of affordable housing.  The houses are energy efficient with solar voltaic panels to generate electricity and are designed to maximise light into the homes.  

The judges applauded “the aspirations of the scheme, delivering 100% affordable housing on a difficult site, highlighting the benefits of modular housing.

“The new set of family homes brings benefits for the wider community and addresses existing anti-social and security issues. It projects its optimism, whilst managing to feel neighbourly.”

Lewis Small, Director at Medway Development Company comments, “We are really pleased to receive this award for Robin Place, which was also shortlisted in the LGC awards in 2021 for Best Housing Scheme. This development shows how working closely with the local community a difficult site can be transformed to provide much needed affordable housing as well as many benefits locally.”

Our work at Robin Place, White Road has also been recognised and celebrated by various award bodies in construction and local government.
