VeloCity won the William Sutton Prize for Excellence in Social Housing Design and Placemaking with our strategy to re-imagine villages for the 21st century. More than eighty applications were received over the summer for the first ever William Sutton Prize. Launched in May by Clarion Housing Group, the William Sutton Prize encourages individuals and organisations to present a new concept, service or idea that will benefit social housing residents and their community.
Clare Miller, Group Chief Executive of Clarion Housing Group said Clarion have been blown away by the quality and diversity of the applications from across the country. The jury panel comprised of Clare Miller (Group Chief Executive of Clarion Housing Group), Peter Fortune, Greg Reed (Clarion Housing Group Board), Biljana Savic (Director of the Academy of Urbanism) and Peter Holbrook (Chief Executive of Social Enterprise UK).
