The Street Design Awards, celebrating innovation and best practice in street design schemes across the UK, have been relaunched by Local Government News magazine.

They are completely free to enter and are open to projects completed by, or on behalf of, local authorities within the past two years.

The Awards are divided into five categories:

• Urban Green Space
• Children’s Play
• Public Lighting
• Pedestrian Environment
• Highways

Entrants will be judged on the overall design of the scheme, the quality and choice of materials used and what the project has achieved within the set budget.

Laura Sharman, editor of Local Government News, said: 'With local government facing unprecedented challenges, it has never been more important to share best practice and reward innovation in the face of adversity.

'Therefore, I am delighted to announce the relaunch of the Street Design Awards, and would urge councils across the country to put forward their best schemes.'

The Awards are supported by the Institution of Lighting Professionals, the Landscape Institute, Play England, and Highways magazine.

The deadline for submissions is 28 February 2019. To enter online please visit: http://streetdesign.localgov.co.uk

Latest issue - Public Property News

This issue of Public Property examines how public sector organisations can unlock the hidden value in their land, and why a new approach to construction could help boost the outcomes of the Government’s One Public Estate programme.

The December issue also considers why learnings from ancient cities could provide the key to promoting wellbeing in the modern built environment. It also contains a case study on how the London Borough of Westminster has provided high quality care for the elderly alongside a block of luxury apartments.
