Nominations are now open for the Academy of Urbanism awards. Nominate a great City, Town, Neighbourhood, Street or Place for an Urbanism Award. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Milton Keynes the Urbanism Awards this year will focus on places built or rebuilt since 1945. What is your favourite new town or post war estate? What about a recent masterplan or high street redevelopment, or even one of the great cities rebuilt after wartime damage? They may not yet be quite as good as a somewhere that has been around for a thousand years, but we should still celebrate those places that have created good urbanism in an age when it was very much out of fashion.
Deadline for nominations for the 2018 scheme: 31 March 2017.
What they are looking for?
Old or new, large or small, we look for places that encourage a high quality of life and perform well in the following areas: Leadership and Governance, Local Character, Amenity, Commercial Success & Viability, Environmental Sustainability, Community Health and Wellbeing and Connectivity. More information is available here.
