The Alan Cherry Placemaking awards
With a pedigree of housebuilding and urban regeneration for over six decades, Countryside has seen the way in which the industry has changed. These developments are not only thanks to the technological advances but owed to a constant review and discussion of industry practices. The industry has also attracted some of the best minds able to deliver innovative and sustainable solutions in urban design.
It is for this reason, seven years ago, we launched the Alan Cherry Placemaking Awards in memory our late founder, Alan Cherry CBE DL, to recognise outstanding individuals working in placemaking in the public sector.
My late father's vision was to create places that people enjoy and these awards celebrate good development design, placemaking and sustainable communities. We're proud to be the only home builder that rewards public sector place makers in this way.
This year's awards are now open. Nominate your placemaking hero here: www.alancherryawards.com. You can make nominations until 31 July so please make sure you get that form complete.
