AN edge of Skipton housing estate has been named ‘best large development’ at the Yorkshire Residential Property Awards.

RN Wooler and Co’s Higher Raikes development won the accolade at the awards ceremony celebrating the talent and expertise of the region’s property industry held at Bowcliffe Hall, near Wetherby,

Earlier this year, the Higher Raikes development was named ‘best new housing development’ at the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards.

A spokesman for Keighley based R N Wooler said: “We are delighted for our directly employed, highly skilled workforce to receive such recognition for all their hard work and commitment.”

Established by the Wooler family from Carleton in 1985, the builders have forthcoming residential developments in Bradley, Embsay and Gargrave.
