Countryside success at Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards
Countryside has received two awards at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s (CCS) National Site Awards 2020. Phase 6.2 of Acton Gardens, Countryside and L&Q’s £800m regeneration of the former South Acton Estate in west London, has received a Bronze award, while St Mary’s in Leicester received a Silver award.
The CCS National Site Awards recognise construction sites that meet the high standards of the CCS Code of Considerate Practice, which monitors how considerate a site is towards the local community, environment and workforce.
Judges look for sites that are clean, tidy, safe, quiet, accountable and responsible. A particular focus for CCS is the cleanliness of any area that is used or seen by the public, as well as availability of parking, and working hours.
Once completed in around 2028, Acton Gardens will deliver 3,463 high-quality, tenure-blind homes of which 50% are for either social rent or intermediate home ownership tenure (by habitable room). The 18-year project is also transforming the former South Acton estate with state-of-the-art community facilities and public spaces, including new parks and play areas.
St Mary’s in Leicester, was also successful at the National Site Awards, receiving a Silver Award. Completed in 2019, St Mary’s is a £18.2m development in Aylestone and part of our ambitious £58m programme of development with Midland Heart which is providing almost 400 quality homes close to Leicester city centre with more than half at affordable rent or for shared ownership.
