Local Authority Initiative

Local Authority Engineering Initiative Award

Sponsored by Cold Chon

This award is open to all local authorities to enter an engineering-led initiative which benefits the community in which it has been introduced.

Examples of possible initiatives could include: an energy saving initiative in a public building; road or traffic management improvements; waste initiative; development of local amenities such as a new playground, greenways, etc.

In the past there has been great diversity in the scale of the projects entered in this category. Therefore the judges may decide to make 2 awards to reflect the scale of the projects entered.
