Landscape Institute Awards 2016 - Urban design and masterplanning
TORPOINT WINS PRESTIGIOUS DESIGN AWARD FOR NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN VISION
Torpoint Town Council and the Torpoint Neighbourhood Development Plan group have won a prestigious National Urban Design award from the Landscape Institute for its work on the Torpoint Vision. The award was presented to the Mayor of Torpoint, Clifton Emery Design and representatives at an awards ceremony in London on Thursday 24 November.
The Torpoint Vision project was submitted to the Landscape Institute by partner agency Clifton Emery Design. The urban design agency have been working alongside Torpoint Town Council and the Torpoint Neighbourhood Development Plan group for the past eighteen months, and have taken the responses and feedback from residents and transformed it into a glittering vision of what Torpoint might look like in years to come.
The winning submission in the class of Urban Design sets out a physical vision for the South-East Cornwall town of Torpoint. The Vision will now underpin the Neighbourhood Development Plan, which the town is actively working towards.
The judges at the Landscape Institute Awards said that the Torpoint Vision "was a robust and deliverable project clearly supported by a fully-costed and realistically phased business plan – a piece of delightful work."
Neil Emery from Clifton Emery Design, who has been working with the Torpoint team from the beginning said "As a designer, it’s always an honour to be shortlisted for an award, but to win; that is a real achievement. On behalf of my team at Clifton Emery Design, I’d like to congratulate Torpoint on this impressive and prestigious award." He added, "As an agency, we are excited to continue to work with the town, to translate this vision into a reality."
The Town Mayor of Torpoint Councillor John Crago added, "This is a real honour for the townspeople of Torpoint; a symbol of all the hard graft and teamwork. We are very, very proud – today is a great day for Torpoint. Thank you to everyone who has played a part in our success so far."
The Torpoint Town Council would like to thank the following for all their contributions; Torpoint Neighbourhood Development Plan steering group, Neil Emery and the team at Clifton Emery Design, Neal Jillings at Jillings Heynes Planning and the residents of Torpoint for their ongoing commitment and support.
