Design and Heritage Champion councillor Barry Stone said: “For the past 16 years, these awards have highlighted and championed the exceptional design qualities that enhance our towns and villages and helps retain the district’s special character.

“I am always delighted by the high quality of entries that we receive and there are some wonderful buildings in South Norfolk. It’s fantastic that these awards give us the opportunity to celebrate the local expertise, hard work and vision involved in creating them.

“South Norfolk is a beautiful place to live and through our planning policies, place-making guide and this competition we aim to keep it that way for now and future generations.”
