Tadpole Garden Village is growing quickly and is a brilliant example of the successful adoption of the Community Interest Company model; a model that aims to give residents ownership of their community and the ability to mould how it develops in the future.
Very recently, in fact, Preim worked with Crest Nicholson to manage the handover of communal amenities, including play parks and green spaces, into theownership of the TGVCIC – a significant cornerstone in the development’s progress. With the amenities now managed by the CIC, the community has direct say and control over how they are maintained and managed.
The master planning and garden village ethos adopted by Crest Nicholson at Tadpole Garden Village has been key in the development leading the way for placemaking in the UK. It is this vision that has led to the adoption of the CIC model and driven the development to its current success – all of which we are sure will be recognised by the BHA judges.
