Call for developers to represent Lichfield in Design Awards

Developers and architects are being urged to represent Lichfield at the Southern Staffordshire Partnership’s 2009 Design Awards.

To make sure the area is well represented, Lichfield District Council is calling all developers and architects to submit their projects.

The awards are in three categories – new build, conservation and refurbishment, or soft landscaping and public art. These will be judged on a range of criteria, including: interpretation of client’s brief, quality of design, local distinctiveness, community involvement and sustainability of design.

Councillor Neil Roberts, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Development Services, said:

“It is important to celebrate the creative force behind the region’s developments because it encourages the industry to think imaginatively, making sure we have a wealth of interesting buildings and spaces. We hope lots of local projects are put forward into the awards as we have so many fantastic new developments across the district.”

For an application form call 01543 308250 or to apply online visit www.southernstaffs.org.uk. For help and advice about entering the awards call Lichfield District Council’s Conservation & Urban Design team on 01543 308153 or 01543 308203.

The deadline for award entries is June 1 when an independent judging panel, led by Midland Architecture and Design Environment (MADE), will draw up a shortlist – which will be announced in the summer.
