THE VALE’S grand designs are set to be recognised at Wychavon’s 10th bi-annual design awards.

Nominations are now open for the five awards up for grabs which aim to celebrate building projects that show real design quality, craftsmanship and sustainable building practices.

The five awards on offer include the Heritage Award, Home Award for a new build, Home Award for extensions and conversions, Sustainability Award and The Community Architecture Award.

The awards will be judged by Wychavon representatives with design, heritage and planning experience, design practitioners and members of the civic societies.

In order to be in contention for an award, a project must have been completed between July 2014 and July 2016 and be within the Wychavon district.

Jim Burgin, Heritage Manager at Wychavon, said: “We’re really looking forward to seeing some great examples of brilliant design that we know exist around the district.

“It’s always a pleasure to look over the award submissions to see the creativity, innovation and effort people put into their building designs.”

Nominations close on Friday, September 9 and should be emailed to policy.plans@wychavon.gov.uk, or nomination forms can be downloaded from the Wychavon website.

The nominations need to include the name and address of the development, which award the entrant wants to be considered for, reasons for nomination and contact details for the person and organisation nominating.
