Aylesbury Vale buildings hoping to be crowned the best

Have you seen a building which you thought was particularly impressive in Aylesbury Vale this year?

Well voting is open for AVDC's Design Awards 2019, with the chance to crown a new building the best in the Vale.

Alongside other categories, that are awarded by a professional judging panel, this award gives an opportunity for local residents to express their opinion on the seven shortlisted schemes.

Members of the public are now invited to vote for their favourite project from those shortlisted which includes the redevelopment of existing sites and the restoration of and/or extensions to buildings.

The seven projects which have been shortlisted for the awards are:

  • Primrose Cottage, Kingswood
  • 2 Heath Road, Great Brickhill
  • Canada Wood, Winslow
  • Catte Street Green, Wingrave
  • Golden Mede, Waddesdon
  • The Exchange, Aylesbury
  • Vinson Building, Buckingham

More information on each of these shortlisted projects can be found on the AVDC website.

Voting for the People's Choice Award will remain open until Sunday 24 November.

Each of the shortlisted projects will also be judged by an expert panel against seven key criteria: context, including local distinctiveness; quality of design and construction; fitness for purpose; sustainability; accessibility; attractiveness and innovation.

The winning projects will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 5th December.

The awards are designed to celebrate projects which complement the environment and heritage and raise the standard of design across the Vale.
