Solent Design Awards 2012
Solent Design Awards 2012
New Forest District Council is encouraging professional designers, contractors and their clients to put forward a nomination for the 2012 Solent Design Awards, inspired by PUSH and supported by the University of Portsmouth.

If you are a built environment professional and have been excited by a New Forest building or special space which really enhances the environment, then nominate it now. Perhaps you know a stunning building or outdoor place which boosts the community in these days of economic recession?

Councillor Paul Vickers, New Forest District Council's portfolio holder for planning and transportation, said: "The council is happy to support the 2012 Solent Design Awards which will showcase the best of the region's design projects including, I hope, some from the New Forest.

"The council recognises the value of design quality in the build environment and I look forward to seeing the range of nominations, whether it is open space and public arena projects, town centre developments and neighbourhood renewal schemes, as well as inspiring buildings."

Any project completed since April 2010 can be nominated and the awards aim to find schemes that create special places, lift communities and create richer experiences. 

In addition to the main awards, the public will get the chance to vote online for their top design in a special poll later in the year.

Paul Grover, from the University of Portsmouth, said: "Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and the Solent area are wonderful places to live. The Solent Design Awards will recognise new developments that add to the quality of life it offers, to the workplace experience and to the appreciation of the environment in which we live."

Entries must be submitted by 7 September and full details and an application form can be found online at solentdesignawards.org.uk
