Placemaking Awards: Nominate now!

The Alan Cherry Award for Placemaking honours public-sector employees who have made a significant contribution to placemaking in their community. The annual award, which commemorates Countryside Properties founder Alan Cherry CBE, was established in 2011 and recognises the role of the public sector in creating high-quality places. 

In 2017, we are adding a Countryside One to Watch Award for people with up to 10 years’ experience in the sector.

To be eligible, nominees must work for local authorities, the GLA family (including TfL, development corporations etc.), housing associations or other public-sector organisations.

For each category, successful nominees will have shown a commitment to championing placemaking throughout their career, promoting high-quality places both within their organisation and more widely across the UK. Nominees should have a track record of: 

  • Promoting development that is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable
  • Leading regeneration projects that transform communities, creating places people love
  • Influencing policy/strategy
  • Driving innovation
  • Setting high aspirations for design quality
