The council’s 2020 built environment Design Awards have been postponed because of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Councillor David Kinniburgh, Policy Lead for Planning, Protective Services, and Licensing (PPSL), said: “We had to make the sad decision to postpone the design awards at the end of last week. We can’t carry out site visits which makes it almost impossible to run and judge a design competition.

“We will review this decision as soon as it is appropriate. Meantime, I send my sincere thanks to everyone who expressed an interest so far.’

The design awards recognise, promote and celebrate examples of exceptional design quality, with a focus on sustainability, which reflects the council’s commitment to meeting its climate change responsibilities.

They pay particular recognition to new buildings, designed and built to meet the highest standards of energy efficiency, help support our environment in highly imaginative ways.
