Hartland Village has been awarded the coveted Gold prize in the Best Public Realm category at the prestigious What House? Awards 2022, a competition which celebrates and showcases the very best new homes across the UK.
This competitive category recognises exceptional and innovative delivery of public realm. The judges commented: “If ever there was an example of placemaking with community engagement at its heart, it is Hartland Village. Connectivity, sustainability, and wildlife corridors highlight St Edward’s healthy living agenda from the outset; the Country Park is all about recreation, wellbeing, and biodiversity. This is public realm not on a grand scale, but a local one, accessible and intimate and encouraging human interaction with nature.”
Hartland Village features a traditionally inspired humped-back bridge which leads residents over a picturesque lake, providing an impressive and idyllic entrance into the village and evoking an immediate sense of belonging.
Hartland Village is surrounded by extensive areas of woodland interspersed with open heath creating a distinctive landscape, while the magnificent 70-acre Country Park that forms part of the development features wildflower meadows, picnic areas and butterfly banks. Cycle paths, trim trails and walkways encourage active and social lifestyles, providing links across the village, the Country Park and the surrounding forests and local towns. It will be home to a new primary school, shops, cafés and other facilities, making it a destination in its own right.
Paul Vallone, Executive Chairman, St Edward comments: “We all know that the place in which you live is defined by so much more than bricks and mortar, and this category embraces every aspect of public realm, from landscaping, parks, and open space through to amenities for residents as well as the wider community. Our superb public realm and commitment to nature, coupled with our strategic and proactive community plan, is creating a thriving and sustainable community of which we are extremely proud.”
