Good Homes Alliance is pleased to support the UK’s longest-running housing awards, set up by government in 1948 and now in their 71st year

To date there have been more than 1,000 winning schemes. The HDA archive of previous winners is the largest such resource in the world.

Run as a social enterprise, the Housing Design Awards invest income into the analysis and promotion of ideas to improve and expand the country’s housing stock. Alongside awards for skill and innovation in general housing, various government departments and agencies champion special category awards, such as:

  • Liveable higher density (With the Greater London Authority)
  • Custom-build or factory build (With Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government)
  • HAPPI (housing an ageing population) (With the Housing Learning and Improvement Network and the Department of Health)
  • Richard Feilden Award: Promoting great housing for all (with Homes England)

We’re pleased that GHA Chair Lynne Sullivan OBE is once again part of a select group of judges, made up of industry experts, government officials and enthusiasts.
