The good news keeps coming in about Hillington Square!

Not long ago, we wrote a post about Hillington Square being nominated in the National Housing Awards for Best Marketing Campaign. The awards took place a couple of weeks ago and although we didn’t win we did get highly commended from the judging panel.

Wait, there’s more!

Hillington Square was nominated and won the Housing category in the Architects’ Journal Retrofit awards.

Also, Architects mae LLP, entered the Hillington Square project in to the RTPI (Royal Town Planning Institute) Planning Achievement Award and Hillington Square was named as a joint winner in the East of England regional awards. The honour was shared with Evolution Town Planning.

And finally Hillington Square is also up for Best Refurbishment Project at the annual Brick Awards with the Brick Development Association, the winners of which will be announced in early November.

Millfleet Court Shortlisted for Award


Freebridge Community Housing are proud to announce that the marketing campaign for Millfleet Court and Hillington Square have been shortlisted in the National Housing Federation Awards. To qualify for the award, Freebridge was to clearly show that they had engaged directly with residents living in the area, along with the wider community.

The in-house communications team at the community housing association designed and implemented the campaign to promote the new homes at Millfleet Court, Hillington Square.

Tony Hall, Chief Executive at Freebridge said: “The regeneration of Hillington Square is by far and away the largest single project we’ve undertaken as an organisation, and potentially one of the biggest that the local community in King’s Lynn will see in the centre of town. It was really important to us that we engaged with everyone, and the campaign met the needs of our tenants, residents and the wider community.

“We always have and continue to be committed to creating A Better West Norfolk, and by Millfleet Court being recognised on a national stage we know that our vision will be supported for many years to come. It’s a fantastic achievement for everyone involved in all aspects of the regeneration, and we are looking forward to find out where we come in September.”

The £30-million regeneration of Hillington Square is being carried out by Lovell Construction. Phase One, Millfleet Court was launched in November 2014, and Phase Two is due for completion later this year.


The results for the national award will be announced in London on 10 September. Wish us luck!
