Tadpole Garden Village celebrates success at the Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2017

October 23, 2017

CREST Nicholson’s Tadpole Garden Village development in Swindon has been announced as a finalist in the ‘Outstanding Placemaking’ category at the Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2017.

The Sunday Times British Homes Awards recognise the excellence of architects, designers and developers working across the residential property sector, and Tadpole Garden Village overcame fierce competition from across the country to be recognised as one of the best developments in the UK.

Set to the north of Swindon, homes at Tadpole Garden Village are surrounded by green open spaces for all to enjoy. Garden Village principles have been fundamental to the design of the development, with thousands of new trees planted to complement the surrounding woodland.

The development will ultimately comprise a collection of 1,855 homes, offering house types ranging from one-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom family homes. Upon its completion, Tadpole Garden Village will offer many amenities to the local community including new schools, a community centre and a public house.

Tadpole Garden Village is a joint development managed by Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects and Crest Nicholson South West.

Andrew Dobson, Managing Director at Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects, said:

“Sustainability has been at the heart of Tadpole Garden Village’s design from the beginning, with all homes built to a high standard of sustainability.

“The majority of our 350-acre site will become stunning scenery for residents to enjoy, with 2,700 new trees and 26km of hedgerow being planted to complement the areas of ancient woodland. The site will also be home to a 99-acre Nature Park, sown with wildflower seeds as part of the ‘Coronation Meadows’ campaign to restore the UKs threatened wildflower meadows.

“We’ve worked hard to ensure that Tadpole Garden Village is a thoughtfully designed and sustainable development. To be named a finalist in the ‘Outstanding Placemaking’ category of these national awards is a real testament to the success of the scheme.”

Homes are still available to purchase at the development, with prices starting from £195,000 for a two-bedroom apartment, or just £156,000 on the Help to Buy scheme. To find out more, call 01793 680477 or click here.
