A new residential development in St. Helens has been named as a finalist in a national award programme that celebrates the best housing developments in the UK.

Radley Park, which is located on Lowfield Lane and is being delivered by St. Modwen Homes, has been shortlisted in the ‘Development of The Year’ northern category of the LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Warranty’s awards scheme. The development was identified for the accolade thanks to the high quality of the housebuilder’s designs and high standard of construction at the site. Radley Park was shortlisted from 3,000 sites that are registered with the LABC.

Nick Seddon, Construction Manager at St. Modwen Homes, said: “It’s fantastic that the team’s hard work and dedication has been recognised by a national housebuilding organisation, especially one that celebrates the highest quality of build in the country.

“We pride ourselves on taking a design-led approach to our new homes, offering stylish yet practical properties that are affordable for the average homebuyer. Radley Park is our first residential development north of Derbyshire so, to have it named as one of the top seven developments in the north of England, is something we are incredibly proud of.”

The shortlisted developments were selected following a visit by one of the LABC’s Risk Management Surveyors and a subsequent judging process that considered specific areas of build and design including foundations, substructure, superstructure, finishes and site organisation, as well as customer service.

Mike Swatton, LABC Warranty Business Development Director and Head Judge, said: “The quality standard of the nominees across the board has been unprecedented, once again raising the bar for next year.”

St. Modwen Homes builds all of its homes to a philosophy of light and height, meaning each room has higher than average ceilings and large windows, allowing light to flood through the properties. Each new home at Radley Park has been designed with purchasers in mind, meaning they boast plenty of storage space, practical yet stylish kitchens and high quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

There’s currently a range of two, three and four bedroom freehold properties available to purchase at Radley Park, with prices starting at just £129,995.

St. Modwen Homes will find out if Radley Park is the winner of the Development of the Year, 11-50 units northern category of the LABC Warranty Awards on Thursday 15 October.
