SOUTH Yorkshire Housing Association beat off stiff opposition from 23 housing associations across the country to win the prestigious ‘Regional Social Landlord of the Year’ title at this year’s Housing Excellence Awards.

Narendra Bajaria CBE, chairman of SYHA’s board, said: “Becoming the Regional Social Landlord of the Year is a great achievement for us. The fact we are able to show that we deliver excellence to our customers in so many different ways is truly a credit to all at SYHA.”

SYHA, which achieved enhanced Decent Homes Standard a year early and has plans to install solar panels onto all suitable housing stock by 2016, was praised for ‘excellent service and award-winning improvement designs’.
