DEVELOPERS behind The Scene have been awarded for their work in the heart of Walthamstow.

Hill Housing group has scooped more industry awards for the huge complex which includes homes, the cinema and restaurants.

At the recent WhatHouse? Awards ceremony on 22 November, hosted by comedian David Walliams, Hill continued its winning streak.

The Scene scooped the awards for ‘Best Partnership Scheme’, ‘Best Brownfield site’ and ‘Best Development’.

They went on to win an additional four awards, including ‘Best Medium Housebuilder’ and the top prize of ‘WhatHouse? Housebuilder of the Year’.

Chief executive Andy Hill said: “We were absolutely delighted.

“Achieving Housebuilder of the Year is a huge endorsement of the whole team at Hill, and the many great developments we have brought forward this year.

“It was a particularly great evening for The Scene – our ground-breaking development in Walthamstow and a partnership with ISHA and Waltham Forest Council.”

The council’s cabinet member for economic growth and high streets, councillor Clare Coghill, said: “The Scene has been a great success and had a truly transformational impact on Walthamstow town centre.

“Bringing a cinema back to the borough was a key objective of the council and the restaurants have proved equally as popular.”
