Coffin Mew join the inaugural South Coast Property Awards

Posted on: February 24th, 2016

The South Coast’s leading property law firm joins the growing list of sponsors of the hotly anticipated South Coast Property Awards.

Developers, agents, occupiers, consultants and professionals will gather for the South Coast Property Awards (SCPA) at Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, on July 7.

The new awards initiative – launched this year by The Business Magazine – is a celebration of commercial and residential property success in the south coast region, and is now supported by all three Property Associations for the region, covering Southampton, Portsmouth and Bournemouth. David Murray, managing director and publisher of The Business Magazine, said:

The SCPA covers the whole south coast region – so we are expecting entries from Weymouth in the west to Chichester in the east, and right up to Winchester and Andover.


Entries are now open, and will close on May 5, for what will be a hotly-contested campaign.

Miles Brown, managing partner comments:

Coffin Mew is delighted to be sponsoring the new South Coast Property Awards. We believe there is great appetite to highlight the strong performers from across our region and expect this to be well received by both the commercial and residential property sectors. As a firm with significant property sector expertise we know our category, Property Deal of the Year, will see some cracking deals being nominated. The Award celebrates a ‘deal’ or transaction that by its size, importance or location makes a significant impact on the south coast region. Such a deal often provides the confidence and momentum to ensure that the region remains buoyant and prominent.


The Business Magazine decided to launch SCPA following the success of the Thames Valley Property Awards (TVPA), which in just two years has grown to a major event attended by 500-plus property specialists.

Finalists who attend the SCPA gala dinner will be entertained by Tiff Needell, television presenter and former F1 racing driver, who will be the evening’s master of ceremonies.

The line-up of judges includes Dawn Baxendale, chief executive of Southampton City Council and head of Invest in Southampton; Dave Lees, managing director at Southampton Airport; Nella Pang, chairperson of Southampton Property Association; and Steve Cripps, chairman of Portsmouth Property Association.
