Land­scape in­no­va­tion to be recog­nised

Yorkshire Post - - REGIONAL NEWS -

IN­NO­VA­TIVE AND dis­tinc­tive new de­vel­op­ments that have been com­pleted in the North York Moors over the past five years are to be cel­e­brated at the Na­tional Park Author­ity’s De­sign Awards.

Land­scap­ing work car­ried out in as­so­ci­a­tion with other projects will also be recog­nised for the first time since the awards were launched in 2010.

The awards, which are held ev­ery two years, recog­nise out­stand­ing de­vel­op­ments where ex­tra con­sid­er­a­tion had been taken for as­pects in­clud­ing ma­te­ri­als, work­man­ship, level of in­no­va­tion and over­all ap­pear­ance. The scheme aims to in­spire ex­cel­lence in the de­sign of new build­ings within the sen­si­tive land­scapes of the Na­tional Park.

Awards co-or­di­na­tor Bri­ony Fox said: “We’re de­lighted to be able to add ‘best land­scap­ing project’ as a sixth cat­e­gory to our award scheme for 2018. Since the com­pe­ti­tion first launched, the fo­cus has been very much on the de­sign and im­pact of new or im­proved build­ings. Now how­ever, we’ll also be look­ing at the level of care and at­ten­tion paid to the im­me­di­ate sur­round­ings of the projects, and how th­ese el­e­ments fit into the wider land­scape of the North York Moors.”

Nom­i­na­tions close on Mon­day Au­gust 6 at www.nor­thy­ork moors.org.uk/des­ig­nawards.
