South Norfolk Design Awards

We believe that South Norfolk is one of the best places to live and work in the country and our aim is to protect and enhance what makes South Norfolk special.

Looking to the future, good design has an important role to play in helping to further improve South Norfolk through better housing, a better working environment, better public buildings and better public spaces.

We encourage and promote high quality and sustainable design and these awards help recognise exemplar buildings and schemes that have helped to raise the standard of design across South Norfolk.
