Nominations have opened in a competition which aims to honour building designers at the cutting edge of their craft across south Norfolk.

South Norfolk Council has launched its annual design awards, which has four categories: design for living, design for working and services, heritage conservation and landscape design.

Barry Stone, a councillor and the council's 'design champion' said: 'For the past 16 years, these awards have highlighted and championed exceptional design that enhances our towns and villages and helps retain the district's special character.

'I am always delighted by the high quality of entries, there are some wonderful buildings in south Norfolk and it's fantastic that we can celebrate the local expertise, hard work and vision involved in creating them.'

Last year's winners included The Abbey Experience at Wymondham Abbey and Brooke Meadow Way in Poringland.
