Keepmoat wins ‘Regeneration Project of the Year’ at Northern Housing Awards

UK homebuilder Keepmoat, is celebrating after its Riverbank View development in Salford was crowned ‘Regeneration Project of the Year’ at the Northern Housing Awards last night.

Riverbank View in Salford was recognised for its ‘commitment to building mixed-tenure homes that accommodate the growing number of residents actively choosing the city as a place to live, work and bring up their families’.

Working with Salford City Council, the regeneration project at Riverbank View prioritised a mixed tenure of homes, from open market sale through to affordable housing options and shared ownership.

The partnership has successfully delivered 425 new 2,3- and 4-bedroom homes, transforming 15 hectares of largely brownfield, formerly industrial land, located on the banks of the River Irwell.

It was completed three years ahead of schedule and in an area set for investment to help tackle deprivation and low-quality housing.

The housebuilder also redesigned green areas to enable residents of all ages to connect with nature, created a play park and outdoor gym equipment connecting the development to the River Irwell.

Keepmoat’s regional managing director, Peter Barlow, said: “It’s great to win the ‘Regeneration Project of the Year’ award and be recognised for the huge transformation that has taken place in Salford. It is also a testament to the work that team has undertaken, alongside our partners, to improve the area, providing both homes, and jobs and investing in the local supply chain to boost the economy.

“The brownfield land at Riverbank View has undergone a dramatic transformation and now exists as a much-needed investment into the Salford area, known for having a lack of affordable housing. Working with community partners Inspiring Communities Together, Salix Homes, and Build Salford consortium, we also delivered an array of activities from recruiting apprentices, delivering training programmes, school career sessions, and school holiday engagement activities, investing more than £81,000 on activities for local people.’’
