Two projects in LBO land are among seven to have been shortlisted for this year’s Aylesbury Vale District Council Design Awards.

The first is Cherry Tree Barn, Bragenham Lane, near Great Brickhill – a new rural family home, based around an existing cow shed, using local and reused materials to provide an environmentally efficient house.

The second is The Grove, Stockgrove Park, near Great Brickhill – one of a pair of new spacious contemporary and sustainable luxury homes in an historic setting.

The judging panel – including district councillors, architects and experts in development and the built environment – chose the entries for their high quality, contemporary designs and contribution to the surrounding area.

The awards are run by the district council on an annual basis .

Councillor Sue Polhill said: “We know how important high quality, well-designed buildings are to the lives of residents and the wider community as the district continues to grow and change.”

The winning scheme will be announced at a ceremony on November 26.
