Hellier's Lane in Cheddar faces off against Olympic tower and Bletchley Park in awards
Cheddar’s biggest affordable housing estate is in the running for an award.
The 77-home Hellier’s Lane estate is a finalist for development of the year (large schemes) in next month’s Chartered Institute of Housing UK awards.
It goes up against the 43-floor Stratford Halo tower that overlooked the London Olympic Park, flats for dementia sufferers at Bletchley Park, a copper drum-shaped £5.5 million home for the homeless in Northampton, a YMCA complex in Croydon and a Lancashire retirement home.
Hellier’s Lane came about through a partnership between Cheddar Parish Council, Sedgemoor District Council, Guinness Hermitage and developer First Step Homes.

Sedgemoor’s affordable housing development manager Duncan Harvey welcomed the news.
He said: “From the outset, the parish council were clear about what they wanted from the Hellier’s Lane project. They wanted to provide high quality, aesthetically pleasing affordable homes which would be occupied by local people.
“We have achieved everything we set out to do. To hear that the project has been shortlisted for a national award such as this vindicates the hard work and persistence of everyone involved in this project.”
Tenants moved into the Hellier’s Lane houses and flats last year.
Each is at least 25 per cent more efficient than traditionally built new housing.
The awards are being held at the London Lancaster Hotel on Tuesday, April 16, hosted by Great British Bake Off
