PCH development wins Abercrombie Award

Our North Prospect development has won the Judge’s Special Award in recognition of ‘the Plymouth planning project that has contributed the most to the city since the Abercrombie Awards began.’

Every three years Plymouth City Council hosts the awards to celebrate the role of architects, designers and developers in shaping our city.

The awards are named after the architect responsible for the plan to rebuild Plymouth after the Blitz and takes a look at a huge range of work from small conversion and projects to transform open spaces to multi-million pound housing projects. 

Andrew Lawrie, Head of Development attended the awards and collected the accolade on behalf of PCH: “This is fantastic recognition for the courage of PCH, Homes and Community Agency, Plymouth City Council and developers; Barratt and Kier.

“North Prospect is not just about building new homes, but about rejuvenating a community. Everyone has put a lot of effort into this project which brings great benefit to locals as well as the whole of Plymouth.  Winning this award should make both residents and PCH very happy.”

Nick Lewis, Chair of the PCH Board said: “We’re really proud of this award and it’s great to be recognised by the Judges for the effort we have put into transforming North Prospect. We’re keen to build more homes in Plymouth – it’s really easy to just put up new houses but PCH is not about that. We want to build communities with decent homes so that people can come and put down roots.

“A house is a home for people to feel safe, feel part of their community and a stable environment for their family. We hope that the regeneration of North Prospect will benefit not just those who live there now but also for generations to come.”
