Civic Society Awards 2020

Shrewsbury Civic Society (SCS) Building Awards are for buildings in Shrewsbury which are considered to make a positive contribution to the built environment of the town.  The last Awards were made in 2018 and this year is to be the next time that the buildings of Shrewsbury are to be considered.

There are three award categories: 

1: New built buildings
2: Renovated or refurbished buildings
3: Shop fronts, new or refurbished

These Awards are for buildings, or shopfronts, which have been completed between 14th September 2018 and the closing date of 14th September 2020.

Anyone can enter a building for an Award.  You do not have to be a member of SCS and you do not have to own the building.  Entries are welcome from owners, occupiers, builders, developers, architects, SCS members, other organisations and from anybody interested in the built environment of Shrewsbury. The more people who participate, the more we can promote the quality buildings of Shrewsbury. Details of how you can make a nomination are outlined below.  

You can make more than one entry and SCS would like to see a wide range of buildings to be considered for the Awards.

The Awards will be announced at a ceremony at Bear Steps Hall on Friday 23rd October at 12.30pm and will be open to the public.

SCS wants to recognise the excellent buildings of Shrewsbury and hopefully give builders of the future something to aspire to.  SCS wants the people involved in building to know that buildings which deserve to be recognised will receive a positive accolade. Please do participate.


If you wish to make a nomination for an award, you will need to submit the name of the building, and the category (New Build or Refurbishment or Shop Front). We would welcome any reasons you might have for your nomination and/or any pictures you may care to submit, though these are not essential for a nomination to be taken into consideration.

To submit a nomination, either email, or phone 01743 344994, or drop into the Bear Steps Hall and speak to one of our stewards or write to Building Awards, Shrewsbury Civic Society, Bear Steps, Shrewsbury, SY1 1UH.
