The Street Design Awards, which are divided into six categories, aim to reward innovation and best practice in urban street design schemes.
The ILP will judge the Public Lighting category, which includes street lighting, the uplighting of public buildings and lighting schemes in the public realm. 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: “It has been a tough year for local authorities who are working hard to deliver regeneration projects while dealing with cuts to public sector funding. Therefore, it is more important than ever we share best practice and recognise the fantastic work that is being carried out across the UK.
“Having the ILP as an independent judge will ensure we continue to push forward standards and recognise who is really delivering award-winning schemes.”
The six categories are: urban green space, children’s play, community-led design, pedestrian environment, highways and public lighting.
The deadline for submissions is 27th April 2012. To enter please visit: www.awards.lgn.co.uk
