Sefton Design Awards 2023

Sefton design awards

Sefton Council are committed to achieving high quality design within the borough’s built environment. We recognise that good design is central to achieving sustainable development by creating quality places and stimulating investment.

There are many examples of good design within the borough and so we decided that the time was right to celebrate the best of these. We have recently held our inaugural design awards competition across several categories, each of which are important in their own right.

The winners were announced on Friday 20th October at the Awards Dinner held at the Grand, Lord Street, Southport.  The event was very well attended and was sponsored by Barratt David Wilson Homes, McComb Property Company and Mikhail Hotels. The raffle in aid of the Mayor’s charities raised over £700.
