UK Landscape Awards 2012
Do you know of a project or initiative that could be the UK Landscape Award 2012 winner for Scotland….?
The UK Landscape Award celebrates projects where public bodies have worked together with local communities to create good places. The Award is for both landscape projects ‘on the ground’ and for landscape initiatives such as policy or guidance.
Many different types of landscape projects can be entered. The main criteria are that they should have been open to the public for at least 3 years and the project involved the local community.
The Scotland winner in 2010 was Baxter Park in Dundee, which was commended at UK level. There are no regional rounds this year so all eligible entries will be entered into the UK final. Strong Scottish entries will also be promoted as good examples of what can be achieved.
The UK Landscape Award is for Local Authorities, charities and non-governmental organisations who can demonstrate that they have managed their landscapes in a way that is an inspiration for others. However, anyone who has been involved with a project can suggest to the Authority / organisation that they enter and maybe even help to complete the entry form.
Entry is free and is fairly simple - involving an online application form plus some photos. Entries close on 19th October 2012.
The Award website www.uklandscapeaward.org gives full entry details and the 2010 entries.
