Park Rise is one of Home Group’s success stories. It’s a mixed- tenure development of spacious, affordable, rented, private sale and shared equity apartments and homes, nestled on a wooded hillside, with wonderful views over High Wycombe. With 164 new homes – 21 one bedroom and 70 two bedroom apartments, and 65 three bedroom and eight four bedroom homes, it has built hope and opportunity in a once notorious estate. Almost a third of the homes are available for shared ownership. Integration of Park Rise into the wider community was a key element and its residents are happier, feel safer and are proud of their new homes and community. In creating homes, Home Group built on pride, friendships and support across this culturally diverse neighbourhood.
This award is for the best development within a neighbourhood regeneration scheme, that can demonstrate the benefit it has brought to an area.
