Winchester, UK (PRWEB UK) 19 November 2015
Lucent Group, a leading land delivery platform in the UK, is delighted to announce that it has won the ‘Planning for the Environment’ award at the prestigious Planning Awards. Lucent was recognised for the quality of its environmental design on the Lincolnshire Lakes scheme in North Lincolnshire. It was also short listed in the ‘Planning Permission of the Year’ category.
The award, presented on Tuesday November 17 at the Royal Society of Medicine in London, was given to Lucent for its outstanding work in delivering environmental benefit through planning. The award's criteria also called for the project to improve the physical and environmental quality of the community as well as to offer improvement to the community's economic or social well-being.
Rosamond Flynn, Co-Founder and Director of the Lucent Group, accepted the award on behalf of the company.
"This honour is extremely important." stated Ms. Flynn. "It recognises the extremely high level of work and detail we put into the planning of all our projects. It also strengthens Lucent’s reputation as a leader at the forefront of land delivery in the UK.”
Lucent’s plans for Lincolnshire Lakes include two new villages that will create a distinctive setting for new homes and communities. The proposals include the creation of a significant number of new lakes helping to create an attractive setting for homes and businesses. The lakes will also play a key ecological role, providing new habitats for important species and mitigating flood risk in the area.
The Lincolnshire Lakes project is one of the largest development investment opportunities in the country that is forecast to provide 6,000 new homes, accelerate regeneration and bring inward investment opportunities to the area.
Aside from Lincolnshire Lakes, Lucent currently has three schemes in the UK including joint ventures with the councils in Peterborough and Allerdale in North Cumbria to assist in the development of their land assets. Lucent is also undertaking the redevelopment and regeneration of Southampton's Royal Pier Waterfront, one of the country’s largest and most high profile schemes.
"Lucent has built a reputation for our unique funding, planning and project execution,” said Ms. Flynn. "But this honour also illustrates how we leverage our considerable insight, capital and caring to develop modern, creative and meaningful sustainable solutions to critical environmental issues."
