The Civic Trust Awards state that that its agile nature that has proven to be its greatest asset and it is with great pride that it can claim to be the only architectural awards scheme in the UK that has continued without interruption, despite the debilitating restrictions placed on the entire Country.
The Guildford Society does point out that on a local scale we managed to run our Design Awards!!!
The Civic Trust Awards have many interesting commendations and winners. The Society is especially interested to see Marmalade Lane, Cambridge winning an award for well designed Multiple Housing scheme.
Multiple Housing is a major issue in Guildford where we need well designed, sustainable schemes brought forward for the Strategic Sites around the town and for major smaller developments such as Garlicks Arch. We are considering Multiple Housing as the theme for our Architecture Lecture which hope to hold, after a interuption due to the Pandemic, in the autumn.
Help us make Guildford better
We want our town to be vibrant, attractive and liveable. We support development that brings a sense of place and enhances the best aspects of our town. If such aims can be embraced, we believe Guildford has the chance to lead the way in enabling sensitive and sustainable development.
Pressures for development are increasing. Planning rules are being eased. The Society’s commitment to standing up for Guildford is needed more than ever.
Getting involved allows the society to continue its work. We welcome new members, from every age and background. Membership provides an opportunity for you to contribute to the continued health of the town and surrounding area, and to meet other people who care about Guildford.
