By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 31 May 2018

A new housing development on Scunthorpe's Westcliff estate has been recognised with a building industry award.

The Parkwood Avenue scheme, which includes 20 new homes, was successful in the category of Best Social/Affordable New Housing Project at the recent Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Awards.

The properties were developed by Ongo Homes in partnership with contractor TG Sowerby Developments and BSB Architecture.

Completed at a cost of £2.1 million, the project provided a mixture of two and three-bedroom houses with modern kitchens and bathrooms, off-road parking, private gardens and eco-friendly features such as bird and bat boxes.

The LABC Awards ceremony was held at the Forest Pines hotel, near Broughton, with prizes handed out in 12 different categories.

The awards are the largest in the building control sector and aim to recognise quality in all types of building project.

The Parkwood Avenue development includes 20 new homes and forms part of the wider regeneration of Westcliff

Martin Phillips, development manager at Ongo, said: "We're really proud of these homes, and it’s great to see them get recognition in these industry awards.

"They are part of a wider Westcliff regeneration project and it will be great to see the area completely transformed once all the work is complete.

"We were up against some tough competition as there’s so much great development work going on, which is really helping to improve the North Lincolnshire area."

Steve Sowerby, manager of TG Sowerby Development, said: "We were delighted to win this year’s LABC building excellence award for Best Social/Affordable New Housing Project in the region, for the houses we built off Bridgewater Road in Scunthorpe last year.

"Working in partnership with Ongo Homes again, this scheme delivered 20 first-class and much-needed new homes on the Westcliff estate ahead of the main regeneration now taking place in that part of Scunthorpe.

"It was a real team effort, and that has been recognised by this award."
