Highly commended – recognition for Southmead Regeneration at Planning Awards!

We are thrilled to announce that the Arnside and Glencoyne Regeneration Team came runners up at the Royal Town Planning Institute South West Branch Awards on January 20th 2020. They received a ‘Highly Commended’ for ‘Excellence in Other Planning Work’.

The Judge’s report detailed that “Particularly impressive is the nature and degree of community involvement”. They had conversations with residents on Arnside, which they said “illustrated the interest of the local community”. We’re really pleased that they visited our community and could see the impact the regeneration plans will have here.

Mike Murch, of BS10 Parks & Planning and Chair of the resident steering group, said that, “this award is recognition for the way the community has worked with professionals to make sure that the regeneration in Southmead is going to be how residents want it and it will benefit generations to come.”

Mike attended the awards event and is pictured here with planners and architects from Nash Partnership and Streets Reimagined.

We are proud of the work and determination that the AGRP, the project team and the community have put behind the project. It really deserves the recognition it received – well done all!
