We receive an industry ‘Oscar’ at the Whathouse? Awards 2023

Newland Homes receives an industry Oscar

Celebrations are in order after we receive an industry ‘Oscar’ being honoured at the WhatHouse? Awards 2023.

The WhatHouse? Awards are widely recognised as the most prestigious industry accolade a housebuilder can receive.  They are highly respected symbols of prestige and excellence, reassuring customers that they are purchasing from one of Britain’s best housebuilders.

Honoured for approach to sustainability

We were honoured for our approach to sustainability with a WhatHouse? Award for Best Sustainable Development at St George’s Mead in Semington, Wiltshire.  The judges highlighted our exemplary ‘climate considerate’ methodology when delivering on its robust sustainability agenda, including zero carbon homes.

Highest energy efficiency and environmental impact rating

The 24 zero carbon homes at St George’s Mead were also praised for achieving the highest energy efficiency and environmental impact rating.  This helps empower buyers to reduce their personal carbon footprint and play their own part in combating climate change.

The WhatHouse? Awards are the biggest event in the housebuilding calendar.  Now in their 43rd year, the annual celebration brings together over 1,500 senior figures from the housebuilding industry.  This year’s awards were hosted by comedian Ed Gamble.

Delighted to win such a respected award

Marcus Evans, Sales & Marketing Director, comments: “To say we are delighted to win such a respected award is an understatement.  We are euphoric!  These awards not only recognise the efforts of recent years, but all the hard work that has shaped Newland Homes over the past thirty years.

“As an independent housebuilder we are extremely proud to uphold our reputation for delivering high quality homes and for pushing the boundaries to enable the delivery of zero carbon homes across the South West, like the ones at St George’s Mead.  This is a momentous win for our team, past and present, all the contractors and consultants who have worked with us, and the people who are proud to call one of our developments their home.”

Second and final phase of development has commenced

Work has commenced on the second and final phase of development at St George’s Mead in Semington.  This will see the creation of 18 three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached zero carbon homes, as well as detached bungalows in this village setting, surrounded by open countryside.  To register interest in the next phase of homes at the award-winning St George’s Mead development, please visit
