From the restoration of a historic burial site to a successful and innovative road safety scheme, the winners of the 2019 Street Design Awards have been revealed.
The Awards recognise innovation and best practice in street design schemes across the UK.
Organised by Local Government News magazine, the awards are open to projects completed by, or on behalf of, local authorities and should have been finished within the past two years.
We would like to offer our congratulations to all of this year's winning entries, and thank everyone who entered the competition.
Our judges - consisting of Play England, the Landscape Institute and the Institution of Lighting Professionals, as well as our sister magazine Highways - kindly gave their time and expertise to make these awards such a success.
We would like to say a special thank you to Lord Chris Holmes of Richmond MBE who assessed the accessibility of the Pedestrian Environment entries.
The awards are broken down into five categories:
Pedestrian Environment – including town centre schemes and pedestrian priority solutions.
Highways – including traffic-calming schemes, road safety improvements and new infrastructure.
Urban Green Space – including new or refurbished parks, open spaces or public gardens.
Lighting – including street lighting, any outdoor lighting scheme and the uplighting of public buildings.
Children’s Play - including refurbished or new play facilities and areas.
The 2020 awards will be open for entries later this year. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest for next year or for any suggestions for new award categories.
