The Land Trust has been awarded the Landscape Institute’s 2015 Client of the Year award.
Representatives of the charity attended a ceremony designed to recognise outstanding contributions to development of infrastructure through landscape architecture.
The Landscape Institute is the Royal chartered Institute for Landscape Architects with a remit to inspire great places where people want to live, work and visit. The Landscape Institute holds their awards annually across seventeen different categories ranging from recognitions for academic contributions in landscape architecture to acknowledgments of extraordinary design projects across the country.
The Client of the Year award recognised the Land Trust’s successes in the green infrastructure sector in working alongside a range of organisations to realize ambitious projects for the benefit of the wider community. The Environment Partnership (TEP), which nominated the Land Trust for the award, referenced sites such as Countess of Chester Country Park and Northumberlandia as examples of their successes working in partnership with developers to deliver quality green spaces for community use.
James Cooper, Senior Landscape Manager at The Environment Partnership, said: “TEP were delighted to be able to nominate the Land Trust for this award. It is a reflection of the partnership working we have enjoyed on such a broad range of projects over the last 12 months and it is extremely gratifying to see the Land Trust being awarded this level of prestige in response to their commitment to creating a positive impact on the landscape and community through their projects.”
Alan Carter, Head of Portfolio Management at the Land Trust, said: “Winning the inaugural award of Client of the Year marks a milestone in the continued growth of the Land Trust. As an organisation, we are all about improving the lives of communities by helping them to reconnect with their local green spaces which are designed and managed to a high standard. It’s gratifying to be recognised alongside so many other projects and organisations that contribute to the wellbeing of our society as a whole.”
