Nominations called for Civic Society Awards

Forget the Oscars, Baftas or Strictly! It’s time to submit your nominations for the Maccesfield Civic Awards Scheme to find out which were the best developments completed or events held in 2016.

West Park View 2015 award

The winners won’t get a statue, lifetime celebrity status or even a Facebook page “like” but there will be lots of recognition for a job well done, a handy commendation and, if especially good, a trendy ceramic plaque to hang on the wall – so plenty to play for!

The Macclesfield Civic Society invites nominations for an award for the best new buildings, improvements and developments completed within the boundaries of the Macclesfield Town Council area between January and December 2017 or for events and exhibitions which made a positive contribution to the character, vitality and prosperity of the town.

Step Hill reopening 2016 award

The judges will look for good design and preservation or enhancement of the character of the town. Consideration will be given to all architectural features such as shop fronts and signs and tidying up of neglected or problem areas.

Nominations can be made by individuals, societies, organisations or companies, including developers who can nominate their own schemes.

There is no limit to the number of nominations that can be made – the more the better.

The Civic Society welcomes nominations for “2017 grot spots” – for buildings or sites needing improvement or a bit of tlc – who knows, it might stimulate some action.
