Design Awards 2017 now open
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.
If you have been involved in a recently completed building or scheme and consider that it has helped to achieve this goal, we would welcome your entry.
The four categories are:
- Design for Living
A new residential property, housing development, extension or conversion of a building to residential use that creates a well-designed, attractive and sustainable place to live and enhances its surroundings.
- Design for Working and Services
A new building, extension or conversion of an existing building that contributes positively to its surroundings, enhances the working environment and/or improves a service.
- Heritage Conservation
Exemplary repair, restoration or conversion of an historic building or structure.
- Landscape Design
The creation or enhancement of a landscaped area to form an attractive, sustainable and engaging space. This can be a stand alone project, such as the design of a public space, or a scheme which significantly enhances the setting of a new or existing building.
Closing date for entries is 25 August 2017
