North Norfolk buildings win awards

Two north Norfolk's buildings have received recognition picking up awards for their design.

North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) walked away with two winners at the 2011 East Anglia Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards held on May 6, more than any other single authority including large urban councils such as Cambridge, Ipswich, Colchester and Peterborough.

The winners were Curve House, Edgefield, for best individual house and New Victory Hall in Neatishead for best community building.

Gary Cass NNDC district building control surveyor, said: 'I strongly believe that the success achieved at the LABC Building Excellence awards is indicative of the exceptional quality available here in North Norfolk, and I am extremely proud at what NNDC and local people have been able to achieve.'

The two winners will now go forward to the national LABC Building Excellence Awards, to be presented in November.
