Submit your nomination for Hertfordshire Building Futures awards
Awards are up for grabs for those who have created a ground-breaking piece of sustainable design work.
The awards, which are run by Hertfordshire Building Futures, a partnership of the county's local authorities, promote sustainable and high quality development in the county. It promotes a web-based guide which provides practical and user-friendly guidance for planning officers, developers and the general public on how to make development in Hertfordshire more sustainable.
Hertsmere Borough councillor, Dr Harvey Cohen, portfolio holder for planning, said: "The awards are an opportunity to get sustainable schemes into the limelight and a chance to gain recognition for innovation, creativity and quality in development.
"Winning an award will enable you and your company or organisation to gain the recognition you deserve as champions of sustainable design and construction in the county."
There are four categories and each project can be entered into one or more category.
The categories are most sustainable construction, design excellence, outstanding commitment to adapt to a changing climate and retrofit for the future.
Local authorities, developers, architects and individual homeowners are invited to enter their projects completed between September 16, 2011 and September 16, 2013.
Nominations run from August 19 until September 27, with an award ceremony on November 21.
