The City of London recognizes and encourages the implementation of sound urban planning principles. The City's Official Plan, a comprehensive policy document, outlines a multitude of policies intended to promote urban design excellence.

The Urban Design Awards program is intended to recognize and celebrate original design concepts and visionary thinking in the following categories:

  • Buildings;
  • Buildings (Small-Scale Residential);
  • Public Realm Enhancements;
  • Public Spaces and Landscapes;
  • Large Places and Neighbourhoods;
  • Adaptive Reuse or Rehabilitation;
  • People’s Choice; and
  • People’s Choice Student Project.    

The Urban Design Awards program seeks to raise the bar on urban design in London by awarding projects that represent excellence, innovation and visionary thinking. Such awards are intended to inspire developers, architects, landscape architects, planners and designers to advance excellence in their own projects in pursuit of community recognition and appreciation. Council's goal is to emphasize the importance of outstanding urban design in establishing a city environment that is creative, engaging, and attractive.
