The award winning business park

The Civic Trust Awards have been established for 42 years, and are given to outstanding examples of architecture, restorations, town planning, landscapes and public art. The Civic Trust Awards scheme is unique in that its judges not only look for design excellence, but also awards projects that benefit local communities and environment.
