Knowsley housing scheme recognised in NWPAs shortlist

A Knowsley development is in the running for a prestigious award when the NWPAs, sponsored by Stewart Milne Homes, take place next month.

TJ Thomas’ Roby Nook scheme is on the shortlist for Best Small New Home Development. Judges are looking for the best design, specification and craftsmanship at a small new home development in this category.

The Roby development comprises six four-bedroom detached homes located on the site of the former St Bartholomew’s Day hospital. The properties are traditionally built and designed to reflect its location adjacent to the conservation area.

Making up the shortlist are Residenza in Manchester, designed by Calderpeel Architects; City Residence in Liverpool, designed by Fibre Architects and Bluebrook in Lancashire by Redwing Living.

The annual event, taking place on 11 October, will celebrate a year of success across the property industry when it’s held at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral’s Lutyens Crypt.

Broadcaster Simon ‘Rossie’ Ross, who has been on the airwaves for over 25 years, will host the glittering ceremony.

The NWPAs judges include director of Falconer Chester Hall, Alastair Shepherd, CEO of Knowsley Chamber, Lesley Martin-Wright and Elaine Cunningham, owner of Elaine Cunningham Design Studio.

Stewart Milne Homes is this year’s headline sponsor while Redrow Homes, 360Vu, No Name by Capricorn Kitchens, Bogans Carpets, Redwing Living, Anwyl and Watts Commercial Finance are supporting as category sponsors. Furnish That Room will sponsor the drinks reception.
