CPRE Gloucestershire Awards

Do you know of any recently completed projects in Gloucestershire’s towns, villages and countryside which are really outstanding in their contribution to the environment or to the local community and should be specially recognised?

Why not nominate them for a CPRE Gloucestershire award?

2024 nominations now open!

Now in its 17th year, a total of ninety-five local initiatives have been presented with a CPRE Gloucestershire Award; from farm shops and community projects to wildlife reintroduction and affordable housing. This year should see us reach our 100th award!

Spearheaded by our Vice Chair, Richard Lloyd MBE, the CPRE Gloucestershire Awards were launched in 2007 to recognise projects which demonstrate sustainability and result in significant improvements to the environment and facilities for their communities.

All projects are assessed against a set list of criteria with all awarded projects meeting the standards set by a panel of judges:

  • Demonstrate innovation and sustainable best practice
  • Improve the quality of the built or natural environment
  • Help enrich local communities
  • Help mitigate climate change
  • Be viewable from public places

Read the full judging criteria here.

Examples might be:

  • a community shop, recreation facility, village hall or heritage project;
  • buildings which fit their setting, are good examples of sustainable construction and efficient in the use of energy;
  • a new nature reserve or habitat with public access;
  • a community orchard, re-establishing old varieties of fruit;
  • water management projects such as wetland creation, reedbed sewage treatment, or a sustainable drainage system;
  • projects that encourage access to local countryside

A cumulative list of all previous award recipients can be seen below.
