Largest listed building in Europe picks up top prize at RTPI Yorkshire Planning Excellence Awards

A landmark regeneration project - among the most significant in the UK - has won top prize at the prestigious RTPI Yorkshire Planning Excellence Awards.

Park Hill in Sheffield, the largest listed building in Europe, won the award for Excellence in Planning Delivery at the ceremony in Leeds on 7 June.  

Developers Urban Splash and Places for People picked up the award for their iconic housing development originally built in 1961. The redevelopment, now in its final phase, includes private, rented, and student accommodation as well as social housing. It also has commercial space and plans for a new art gallery.

The RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence celebrate outstanding plans, projects and people that demonstrate the power of planning. Other winners on the night included Planner Abigail Upton of DLP Planning who scooped the prize for Young Planner of the Year, and planning consultancy Urbana, who won Small Planning Consultancy of the Year.

City of York Council were awarded the top accolade for their City of York Housing Delivery programme in the Plan-Making category.

RTPI Yorkshire Awards judge Alyn Nicholls said: “Park Hill is an excellent example of balancing heritage requirements with regeneration needs. The scheme is an environmentally friendly redevelopment of an iconic estate which provides refurbished apartments of a wide range of type and tenures next to the city centre.”
