Dumfries and Galloway Council Design Awards 2023
The 2023 Design Awards are for development or building works completed between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2023
Dumfries and Galloway Design Awards first took place in 2016 and again in 2019. The awards set out to recognise, celebrate and promote design that provides new, restored and/or adapted buildings and places which have been conceived and developed sensitively, in a manner that will help the region meet its environmental goals.
Development slowed down in the last few years due to lockdown restrictions, so the 2023 Design Awards cover a 4-year period, for projects completed between the 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2023.
The Design Awards are organised by the Council's Local Development Plan Team, part of the Economy and Resources Directorate. Three independent judges evaluated the projects and selected those they thought deserved recognition. There are no pre-decided categories because some of the entries in previous Design Awards could not be neatly assigned to a single category.
