President's Special Recognition Awards 2017 results

30 January 2017

This is the second year of celebrating the achievements of members in this way and again we are overwhelmed by the positive response

We had a total of 15 entries across the 3 different categories. The 3 categories are the same as last year which were taken from the ADEPT Policy Prospectus. These are:

1. Meaningful devolution for all communities across the UK

2. Powers to plan and grow successful communities and places

3. Long term funding to prevent, prepare and respond

We would like to thank all the people who took time to enter the awards and share with us their hard work. The commitment and innovation of ADEPT members is outstanding and the quality of the entries made the judging very interesting. With this in mind as well as the award winner for each category we also awarded a highly commended prize in each category.

All 15 entries can be seen here but if you would like to read the entries in full and find out more about them please click here.
