The biennial Civic Awards for Cheltenham’s best new and refurbished buildings will take place next spring and Cheltenham Civic Society is now seeking nominations for recent building projects that are worthy of consideration.
The Society runs the Civic Awards every two years in partnership with Cheltenham Borough Council and the aim is to celebrate the best in design, craftsmanship and placemaking in the town.
To qualify, the building project must have been completed between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2020 and be situated within the Borough of Cheltenham.
There are awards for new buildings, restorations and refurbishments, environmental schemes and shopfronts.
Anyone can nominate a building or project that they think merits recognition for its design or the quality of its build.
Cheltenham Civic Society Chair, Andrew Booton, said: ‘We particularly welcome nominations from members of the public – who often have a very good eye for design.
‘Judges will consider factors such as context, originality and quality of design, the choice of materials, the workmanship and the standard of restoration. It doesn’t need to be a grand building. We’re just looking for high-quality design and execution.’
The closing date for receipt of nominations is 31 December 2020.
