L&Q wins big at the WhatHouse? awards

Published on 19/11/2019

We’re delighted to announce that we have won three awards at one of the UK’s most prestigious housebuilding events.

The annual WhatHouse? awards aim to celebrate the very best new homes being delivered in the UK. We walked away with three awards in key categories:

  • The Quarry won a Silver Award for Best Starter Home
  • Weavers Quarter won a Silver Award for Best Partnership Scheme (with the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham)
  • Chobham Manor won a Bronze Award for Best Partnership Scheme (with Taylor Wimpey)

Fiona Fletcher-Smith, Group Director of Development and Sales at L&Q said, “From helping buyers get onto the housing ladder for the first time, to working in partnership with housebuilders and local authorities, these awards recognise the work L&Q is doing to tackle the housing crisis.”

“These developments range from Bexley to Newham and Barking and Dagenham. However what ties them together is that they combine best-in-class design, with affordable homes and community facilities, making a real difference in their local areas.”
