Brook Valley Gardens shortlisted at the Property Awards


Brook Valley Gardens, Countryside and L&Q’s regeneration of the former Dollis Valley Estate in Chipping Barnet, has been shortlisted at the Property Awards 2019 in ‘The Placemaking Award’ category.

Organised by Property Week, the Property Awards are the UK’s leading annual awards dedicated to the property industry, recognising and rewarding the work of the very best companies, teams and individuals over the past year.

Working in partnership with L&Q and Barnet Council to transform the former Dollis Valley estate, Countryside is providing over 600 high quality new homes at Brook Valley Gardens, of which 240 (40%) will be affordable, along with three public parks, a community centre and a nursery.

Brook Valley Gardens is a unique development, designed as a modern garden suburb, with diverse landscapes, wildlife and green open spaces. The ‘21st century garden suburb’ masterplan predominantly consists of houses rather than flats, but at a much higher density than the conventional suburban area. Thanks to a new network of residential streets and a ‘tenure-blind’ approach, Brook Valley Gardens is a genuinely mixed community, bringing an unprecedented sense of cohesion and wellbeing to the area. The winner of ‘Best Residential New Build (10+ units)’ at the Delivering for Barnet Architecture Awards in 2017, Brook Valley Gardens is leading the way in sustainable suburban development.

The winners will be announced at a black-tie awards ceremony on Wednesday 24 April at the Grosvenor House hotel in London.

Andy Fancy, Managing Director, Partnerships South (North & South), Countryside, said: “We are ecstatic that the quality of the placemaking at Brook Valley Gardens has been recognised at the Property Awards. Brook Valley Gardens is a prime example of what can result when a bold vision for suburban estate regeneration is brought to fruition by experienced and thoughtful developers, an engaged local authority and an involved community.”
