Whathouse.co.uk has agreed a potential seven-figure, two-year main sponsorship agreement with Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, effective from June 2013. The whathouse.co.uk and What House? branding will appear on the first team home and away shirts and on all technical training kit as part of the deal.
In a further show of its support for the residential property sector, Zoopla Property Group has today announced that it has signed a long term deal to become the headline sponsor of the What House? Awards.
This category is always hugely competitive, with a number of superb housebuilders entering, and last year's high standards did not disappoint.
Gold - United House Developments
United House Developments was awarded the prestigious Best Medium Housebuilder accolade, following an outstanding year, which also saw the company crowned Housebuilder of the Year.
"What gives United House its edge is that running through the heart of everything it does is good and innovative design," said What House? judges.
I went to the pub the other day and spoke to a local councillor. We talked planning. I did not tell him what I write about for fear of villagers marching on my house with torches, pitchforks and makeshift gallows.
I don't remember much. Sussex ales tend to do that to me. But what I do recall is that the councillor, a very successful local businessman, said it doesn't matter what central government legislates, prescribes, insists, suggests, or asks nicely for when it comes to delivering more homes.
‘Granny Tax hits pensioners' ran the newspaper headline. What, with her handbag? Was it a dispute at Bingo? Meanwhile the Budget ‘pandered to millionaires' or ‘hit them hard in the pocket' depending on the colour of your politics, or nature of your job.
Globespan Media, publishers of Show House magazine and www.whathouse.co.uk, has an unprecedented six nominations in the LSL Property Press Awards, recognising the very best in UK property journalism.
To the tune of "She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes" - all together now - "You can stick your f***ing houses up your ar*e..."
Blimey, that's a bit fruity for a National Trust AGM. I know they are at the vanguard of an ignorant anti-development campaign, but language please NIMBYs, language.
The Dukes of Buccleuch and Queensberry have lived in Boughton House, a Northamptonshire pile known as ‘The English Versailles,' for nearly 500 years. My family lived in a low carbon semi on the edge of a Northamptonshire housing estate for 24 hours. The two worlds might yet collide.
Rupert Bates, editorial director of www.whathouse.co.uk - the leading new homes portal - has slammed anti-development groups, including the National Trust and the CPRE, for “peddling a naked NIMBY agenda dressed up as protecting the countryside.”
I try not to agree with Simon Jenkins, the former editor of The Times. He is, after all, chairman of the National Trust and when I waved my banana - Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anyone - at the What House? Awards I was waving it at him and his anti-development ilk.
