Aylesbury wins London Planning Award

Thu 21 February 2013, 4:58 pm

The first phase of Southwark's Aylesbury Estate regeneration has won the "Best New Place to Live" accolade in the London Planning Awards.

Judges called Aylesbury Phase 1a “a proud testament to the merits of inspirational and robust design-led place-making”.

The creation of the scheme’s six-building, 261-home first phase was intended as a prototype for the estate’s subsequent development and saw Southwark Council closely involve residents in the plans for designs drawn up by Levitt Bernstein Associates.

Andy Rowland, land and projects director at development partner London & Quadrant, said the latest recognition for the scheme was well-deserved.

“These award-winning properties are the sort of homes that people want to live in,” he said.

Levitt Bernstein director Barry McCullough said the scheme owed its success to the “excellent collaboration" between partners, and their vision, energy and skills.
