Still time to enter RIHAF’s Development of the Year Award 2019
Have you recently completed a rural development? Enter RIHAF's Development of the Year Award 2019.
This year’s Scottish Rural and Islands Housing Conference, which takes place on 31 October and 1 November at Easterbrook Hall in Dumfries, will see the return of the RIHAF Development of the Year Award. The award is an opportunity for rural housing associations across Scotland to enter their best developments.
The award is easy to enter. Entrants are asked to create a PowerPoint with a maximum of five slides which include good quality images of the development and explanatory text. Ideally, there should be images on each slide, with either bullet points or short descriptions that highlight the main points of the development. This should be emailed to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org before the conference or taken along on a USB to the event on Thursday 31 October.
Entrants should also include their organisation’s logo, name of the development, when it was built and its location. Please also highlight any issues such as design features, community involvement, sustainability, and, in particular, why your project should win.
To enter, the development must:
- have been completed onsite between March 2018 and March 2019
- be located in a rural location
- contain a significant proportion of affordable rented housing
All entries will be displayed throughout the conference, and delegates will choose a winner which will be announced on Friday morning.
This year’s Scottish Rural and Islands Housing Conference is hosted by Loreburn Housing Association. It takes place on the 31 October and 1 November at Easterbrook Hall, Dumfries.
