December 2009: Cross Street South receives a Gold Award from Building for Life with a score of 18.5

Announcing the winners on Wednesday 2 December, Wayne Hemingway said: "The residents of these winning schemes must feel as if they've won the lottery.

We urgently need to deliver this quality of housing as standard."

Housing minister John Healey: "What I can see here in the middle of urban Wolverhampton is an eco village that sets the standards for what we should be building in the future,"
