The Civic Trust Awards scheme was established in 1959 to recognise outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built environment.

As one of the oldest built environment awards schemes in Europe, during the last 50 years, more than 5500 projects have been rewarded and the scheme has continued in its objective to recognise projects that have made a positive contribution to the local communities they serve.

The winners will be announced at a Ceremony at St George's Hall in Liverpool on Friday 12th March 2010 which will be hosted by two of the Awards Patrons; architect and TV Presenter George Clarke (Channel 4 - The Home Show) will present the Awards with the keynote speech delivered by Chris Wilkinson OBE RA, founder of Wilkinson Eyre Architects.
