Sanctuary Homes have been shortlisted for a major national award, recognising commitment to building quality, affordable homes available for Shared Ownership.

The Westcliffs, our collection of sixteen 2 and 3 bedroom apartments in the seaside town of Westcliff-on-Sea in Essex, has been selected by the annual Inside Housing Development Awards as one of just ten developments nationally to qualify for their Best Shared Ownership Development (rural and suburban) category.

The award recognises a completed or planned development that creates a new community and desirable, high quality homes for shared ownership.

The Westcliffs is a very successful regeneration project, completed at the end of 2020 and the shared ownership properties sold in a record time, proving to be one of our most popular sites, not just regionally in the East of England but also nationally. It demonstrated a need for good quality affordable housing in the region which Sanctuary Homes are committed to providing. The development showcases the very best of apartment living with high quality specifications and ample outdoor space.

In addition to building the new properties in a sought-after location, Sanctuary Homes also worked with its partner contractor Taylor French Developments to support a number of local community projects while working on The Westcliffs.

Gemma Middleton, Head of Marketing for Sanctuary Homes said it was an honour to be recognised: “We are so proud and excited to be shortlisted by Inside Housing Development Awards and to be in a category with such esteemed developers, all of which produce much needed new homes to allow people to take those first steps onto the property ladder.”

“The Westcliffs is a fantastic development, beautifully designed and built, in a great seaside location and everyone involved with the project had a passion to create homes that people would be proud to move into.To be shortlisted is a real testament to our commitment to building affordable homes and sustainable communities where people choose to live.”

The Inside Housing Development Awards ceremony takes place at the InterContinental London at the O2 on 4th November 2021.
