Wrexham Area Civic Society Awards 2016


Wrexham Area Civic Society operates an Annual Awards scheme for the best recent contributions to Wrexham County Borough’s environment. The Society is seeking nominations from its own members, the public, community councils, councillors and professionals for recently completed projects in any of the categories listed below: 

New build. A project of notable architectural merit and respect for context

Architectural Conservation. Award for conservation of a building or structure of historic or architectural interest, to a high standard. Recent examples have included domestic and farm buildings, war memorials, chapel conversions.

Regeneration Award. Award for regeneration or renewal of an existing building or structure. Examples might include public building refurbishments, or church reorderings with community benefits.  

Landscape or environmental improvement.  Examples might include landscaping of a derelict site; creation or restoration of a public open space or playground; public art such as a sculpture or mural.

Award for Sustainability. A new or refurbished building or project which demonstrates environmental sustainability well in advance of statutory requirements.

The Ruth Howarth Award. An award made for a significant contribution to Wrexham’s environment or quality of life, not necessarily a building or landscape.

Wooden Spoon Award. An occasional award made for conspicuous failure to consider fully the context of a development, or failure to appreciate that good design is an important part of the environment.


There will be one main award in each category followed up with commendations, where appropriate.

Nominations, on the accompanying form, must reach the Secretary, Nick Roe, 27 Fairfield Street, Wrexham LL13 7DU; email: nickroe01@gmail.com by 30th September 2016.

Judging will be in early October and the awards evening will be held on Friday 18th November 2016. 

Reports with pictures from previous years’ Awards may be found on the Civic Society’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/wrexhamcivic/

The Wrexham Area Civic Society Awards are sponsored by Williams Financial Planning
