Last night, (Thursday 14 March), the twelfth Waverley Design Awards were held to celebrate the best of the borough’s new developments.

Around 85 awards nominees and guests, including the Mayor of Waverley, Councillor Denise Le Gal, Leader of the Council, Councillor Julia Potts,  Portfolio Holder for Policy and Customer Services Councillor Christopher Storey and expert judges, gathered at the refurbished Memorial Hall, Farnham to find out who, out of the outstanding entries from across the borough, had scooped the awards.

The evening ceremony began with an exhibition with drinks and light refreshments, followed by the formal presentation. The judges, who were on hand to give out some of the awards, included the council’s Design Champion, Councillor David Else, Laith Anayi of Stedman Blower Architects, Mark Gower from UCA, Heather Kerswell of HK Associates and Russell Morris,  Historic Buildings Officer at Waverley Borough Council.

Councillor Christopher Storey, Portfolio Holder for Policy and Customer Services, said: “We’d like to thank all those who entered the awards this year and extend our congratulations to the winners; the standard was, as usual, very high and there were some deserving winners who have played a huge role in helping ensure Waverley continues to have a high quality built environment. Thanks also to those who took the time to vote for their favourite buildings in the People’s Choice Award.”

The awards were introduced in 1995 by Waverley Borough Council to encourage interest in the quality of the borough’s built and natural environment and to promote an awareness of the need for high quality design.

Sponsor for the 2018/19 Design Awards was The Haslemere Society.
