Civic Voice Award for the Master's House

May 2016

The Master's House in Ledbury has won the Restoration category in the 2016 Civic Voice Awards. The awards give communities an opportunity to nominate projects that have made a difference in their local area, and the project was nominated by The Friends of the Master's House, whose support, vision and hard work have sustained this project since 2002.

Max Farrell, chair of the Civic Voice Design Awards judging panel, introducing the awards, said, “The design of the building or scheme is just one part of the story. What matters just as much is how it was developed. These winners each reflect many of the aims and ambitions of Civic Voice. - a commitment to placemaking through a collaborative approach pulling the public, private and voluntary sector together. The Civic Voice Design Awards are showing that communities do not just want to stand at the side and complain, they want to get involved and shape the places they live in”.
