With many town centre regeneration projects changing the face of the local landscape, the creation of successful pedestrian environments has never been so important. This category includes town centre schemes and pedestrian priority solutions.
This category recognises those local authorities that are investing in new green sapces, or refurbishing parks, open spaces or public gardens.
Whether it is a new children's play area or the refurbishment of an existing facility, this category will reward schemes that have created safe but stimulating play.
This category includes street lighting, any outdoor lighting scheme and the uplighting of public buildings.
From new walking routes to increasing take-up of cycling, this category aims to celebrate those councils that are pioneering active travel in their local communities.
