Cheshire West and Chester Civic Awards for Design and Conservation 2021

27 April 2021

The ‘Cheshire West and Chester Civic Awards for Design and Conservation 2021’ will celebrate the best examples of recent changes to the built environment. 

Anyone can make a nomination for schemes large and small. There are separate categories for residential developments, commercial, retail, and industrial developments, and for the first time this year, a new category for projects which are low carbon and energy efficient. 

Nominations are invited until the closing date on 30 June 2021. Eligible schemes must have been substantially completed between 1 June 2015 and 31 May 2021. Guidance notes and the nomination form can be found on the Chester Civic Trust website

Gemma Davies, Director for Economy and Housing at Cheshire West and Chester Council said: “Good design is at the very heart of making the Borough a great place to live, work and play. The Civic Awards for Design and Conservation represent a great opportunity to recognise and celebrate those individuals and developers, architects and contractors who have excelled to achieve high standards in their buildings and public realm projects. I very much look forward to the submissions that will come forward.” 

Stephen Langtree, Chester Civic Trust added: “By rewarding the best architectural projects in the last six years this award scheme aims to stimulate interest in traditional craft skills and contemporary design. We are grateful to Vinci Construction who have joined us as a sponsor this time.” 

The awards began in 1979 and have grown over the years into a partnership between the Council, Chester Civic Trust and the Cheshire Society of Architects. Since 2010, the five-yearly cycle of awards has covered the whole borough from Neston to Winsford, and from Frodsham to Malpas. The awards have been delayed a year due to Covid-19.
