Forth Bridge World Heritage Partnership Project shortlisted for national award

Wed 17 Aug 16

The Forth Bridge World Heritage Partnership Project has been shortlisted for the Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning 2016.

The Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning (SAQP 2016) are one of the most prestigious annual award events in Scotland and recognise outstanding achievements in planning – ranging from creative new developments and inspiring new settlements to innovative new approaches to thinking and process. The awards celebrate ground breaking new achievements in planning and with over 60 applications entered from across Scotland this year, winning a place in the finals is widely recognised as a considerable achievement.

The Scottish Government has introduced a new category for 2016 – the People's Choice Award, which, to celebrate Scotland's Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016, allows, for the first time, members of the public to cast a vote for their favourite shortlisted SAQP entry.

This means that everyone now has the chance to show how much they appreciate Scotland's iconic Forth Bridge by going to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PeopleschoiceSAQP and casting their vote for the Forth Bridge World Heritage Partnership Project.

The Forth Bridge was inscribed by UNESCO's as a World Heritage site in July 2015, making it Scotland's sixth World Heritage site.
