The search is on again for the best new and restored buildings in the Chilterns.


The annual Chilterns Buildings Design Awards competition is seeking entries from home-owners, architects and developers who are proud of the work they have done in the Chilterns.


The Awards are offered by the Chilterns Conservation Board and The Chiltern Society, two organisations dedicated to safeguarding whats best in the Chilterns, one of the most outstanding areas of countryside in England, and to encouraging high standards for new development.


Colin White, Planning Officer at the Conservation Board, said, 'We want to encourage better building design, and to encourage architects and developers to use traditional, local materials and designs in their work. We are not trying to turn back the clock, or to prevent progress, but we do believe that new buildings in the Chilterns should fit in with the style and scale of their environment.'


It isnt just new houses that are eligible for consideration. Industrial and public buildings are also eligible, as are conversions of existing buildings.


Last years overall winner was a modern contemporary house in Little Chalfont. Runners-up included a refurbished former Rothschild house in Aston Clinton and an extension to a house in Chalfont St Giles.


The closing date for entries or nominations is March 1st, 2011. Application forms and further information are available from the Conservation Board office on 01844 355500, email: office@chilternsaonb.org or from the Chiltern Society, White Hill Centre, Cheshamon 01494 771250, email office@chilternsociety.org.uk.
