A standing ovation at this year’s Northern Housing Awards was a rather apt endorsement of what the event is ultimately all about.
No, this wasn’t an audience of housing professionals applauding their industry peers – they were rising to put their hands together in honour of Muir Group Housing tenant, Daniel Pendlebury, as he collected his award for Tenant of the Year.
At the end of the day, it’s the people and places that matter – the living, breathing communities – where the sector works to make a difference, so you could say its only right that the audience took a moment to applaud the people they serve.
In a sense, then, the awards are the icing on the cake; just desserts for delivering the services and the homes, and all the rest, that is helping to put the spark of life and soul back into the North
And so the Northern Housing Awards returns for its third year on the 13th May 2020 to celebrate not just the most innovative affordable housing providers, projects and supply-chain partners in the North but also the individuals helping to create great communities where people love to live!
Nominations are now live with the deadline for entries on the 5th March 2020.
New categories for 2020 include Best Carbon Reduction Scheme/ Innovation, Best Development for Market Sale, Best Development for Private Rent, Best Development for Social Rent, Shared Ownership Scheme and Northern Housing Team of the Year.
