Voting is now open for the Lincoln Good Design Awards 2019 and the city council is asking for you to cast your vote on Lincoln’s shortlisted entries!
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at The Blue Room, situated in The Lawn, on Monday 18 March 2019.
The planning team from City of Lincoln Council have been heavily involved in the awards, drawing up a long list from schemes approved by the Planning Committee and officers.
A panel of experts from the city council drew up the final shortlist which has been narrowed down to five candidates per category based on criteria including innovation, sustainability and architectural ambition.
There will be a winner and runner up for each category and all entries will be put in for the Outstanding Project Award which will be chosen by Cllr Jim Hanrahan and presented at the end of the evening.
Cllr Jim Hanrahan, Chair of City of Lincoln Council’s Planning Committee, said: “We are pleased to hold City of Lincoln Council’s second Good Design Awards which were introduced to acknowledge and encourage good design in our city.
“In drawing up the shortlist, we have looked at lots of aspects that contribute to a great design, such as how the building contributes to its environment and how it engages and stimulates visitors.
“Although most of the buildings are very different in their designs, they all have one thing in common – they make a positive contribution to the visual appeal of Lincoln.”
