AVDC Design Awards 2019

Celebrating outstanding design in the Vale

The AVDC Design Awards celebrates projects which make an outstanding contribution to the design quality of the built environment in the district. 

In 2019, the event is celebrating its 26th year and we want to also celebrate not only examples of high quality buildings or structures but special spaces, places and public realm, large and small development schemes and from a mix of uses so residential, commercial and community schemes.

Aylesbury Vale is a great place to live, work and grow and we would love to hear nominations from residents who have admired a nearby new development or a new play park for example. Celebrating these achievements and good examples helps the district raise the bar and enhance the design quality of new developments to maintain the special qualities and distinctiveness of Aylesbury Vale.
