Crest Nicholson’s Finberry development in Ashford has been Highly Commended for Best Housing Scheme at this year’s Planning Awards, which celebrates excellence in both planning and placemaking.


The category is open to developments of 500 homes or more which have had a positive impact on the social and economic well-being of the communities in the area. The winners were announced at a ceremony which took place last week at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in London.


The judges commented: “Crest Nicholson’s vision for Finberry is a flourishing community, championing small businesses that contribute to village life and offering high-quality living for everyone. More than just a housing development, Crest Nicholson has created a thriving, social community at one with the surrounding wetlands and woodlands.


“Crest Nicholson is committed to delivering long-term investment and onsite assets with longevity, supporting both residents and the natural environment for future generations.”


Finberry comprises three unique developments - The Village Centre, Green Oaks, and Captains Wood. Prices start at £215,500 for a two-bedroom home, for more information visit
