n Workshops and industrial developments
n Landscaping and enhancement schemes
n Community amenities
n Repairs and refurbishments
At the launch of the awards in October, the mayor, Colin Manning, said: “The fact that we have such highly talented people submitting designs to create attractive houses and buildings in the borough contributes so much to making West Norfolk such a desirable place.
I am certain this year we will again receive an incredibly high standard of entries. So please do nominate and encourage others to nominate schemes that are innovative and attractive and that enhance our locale.
Let us rightly reward the people responsible for these wonderful designs.”
All nominations will be assessed by the mayor and a panel of judges.
The judges will be looking for schemes which bring pleasure through design, workmanship or their contribution to a particular setting.
Anyone can nominate a building or scheme with the permission of the owner by completing an application form.
Application forms are available at www.west-norfolk.gov.uk.
Paper copies are also available at borough council offices and parish councils.
All applications should be accompanied by photographs depicting the site before and after works.
The winners will be announced at a special award ceremony in April 2016.
