A double win for Limelight

By PRP – 30 November 2018

PRP is thrilled to announce that Limelight, a community health and well-being hub, located in the heart of Old Trafford was a double winner at the Inside Housing Development Awards 2018, winning the 'Best Older People's Housing Development (over 71 homes)' and 'Best Affordable Housing Development (over 71 homes)'.

Limelight also went on to receive a commendation in the 'Best Residential Development (over 71 homes)' category. The project was jointly submitted by Willmott Dixon with Trafford Housing Trust.

The development integrates 81 extra-care apartments with GP surgeries and community facilities, including a café, event space, library, a 40 place children’s nursery, sports and recreation facilities alongside the re-provision of a new church and rectory.

Limelight is one of the first integrated hubs to be delivered in the UK, and is a model for future age friendly developments, which places older people at the heart of their diverse community.

The winning schemes were announced yesterday (Thursday 29th November) at The Brewery, in London.
