Our Rochdale Borough Design Awards celebrate the best in new development design, focusing on the relationship between good design and building successful communities. 

Councillor Carol Wardle, our Cabinet Member for Planning, Development and Housing, said:

"These awards highlight some of the very best local design projects. This year's shortlist includes innovative examples of existing buildings being completely transformed and new schemes that have enhanced their communities.  The annual list always illustrates just how much regeneration and improvement is taking place, but now it's over to residents to decide. I wish them all good luck."

Last year the restoration of 2 semi-detached houses designed by famous local architect Edgar Wood at 51-53 Rochdale Road in Middleton won the People's Design Award.
