Date: 22 August 2014
The Design Awards, which take place bi-annually, seek to recognise building schemes whose appearance and design enhance the attractiveness of the wider Lancaster area (including Morecambe, Heysham, Carnforth and the rural surrounds).
The Awards are not exclusively focused on large-scale schemes, but on any project from a shop-front or a private home, to public or industrial buildings and landscaping projects. Nominations for the awards are made by local residents and community groups, as well as by developers, builders or architects.
The awards ceremony will take place in the LICA Building (itself a winner in the 2012 Awards) from 6pm on 23rd September 2014.
