On Tuesday 30th January the Lord Mayor’s Design Awards were hosted at the Mansion House in Jesmond.

The Lord Mayor's Design Awards have been running since 1994. The aim is to encourage, promote and publicise the best in architecture and environmental design, and to help improve the built environment. Awards are given to outstanding projects in the fields of architecture, planning, environmental, urban and landscape design. 

Cllr Linda Wright, the Lord Mayor of Newcastle, said: “It was a pleasure and an honour to hand out the collection of prestigious Lord Mayor’s Design Awards to such a talented array of designers, architects and construction professionals. The projects from the education, leisure, residential and commercial sectors represents the healthy condition of Newcastle’s design principles. The awards are a reflection of the hard work that people put into how our great city looks for residents, workers and visitors to Newcastle.”
