An eco-housing scheme on the edge of Norwich has won top prize at a national planning award event in London.
Carrowbreck Meadow, a development of 14 Passivhaus homes in Hellesdon, won the Excellence in Planning to Deliver Housing category at the Royal Town Planning Institute's (RTPI) Awards for Planning Excellence 2017.
The scheme is the first development by Broadland Growth - a partnership between Broadland District Council and NPS Property Consultants Limited. As well as being an eco-friendly development, it is also made up of more than 40pc affordable housing.
Chairman of Broadland Growth and council leader Andrew Proctor said: 'The award is testimony to the excellent teamwork and vision of our planning teams working alongside design and building consultancy Hamson Barron Smith to deliver an innovative Passivhaus project that delivers excellence in housing.'
