The Towns Alive National Awards 2014 launched at AMT Towns Alive’s annual MPs reception on Tuesday 11 March with many previous winners in attendance to share their inspirational ideas and talk about how winning a Towns Alive Award had helped them.
We are now seeking entries from projects that have transformed a town, rejuvenated a neighbourhood, or brought a community together.
We’re also delighted to announce a special 10th Anniversary Award for 2014, allowing former winners from the past 9 years to compete for the accolade of the project or projects making the biggest difference over a sustained period of time.
The deadline is 6 June 2014.

Towns Alive members told us about the services they value most from their membership.
Business rates, the perception that parking is problematic, and “Our town is failing to push home the message that people should use what is available to them locally” are the major issues facing towns and high streets, according to new Towns Alive research published this week.
We’re delighted to announce that Bury St Edmunds will be the location for our 2014 flagship annual conference after the town beat impressive bids from other towns across the country wanting to host the event.
We expect more than 200 delegates representing towns (and cities) from all over the UK to attend the conference, taking place on 5th and 6th November 2014.
The winners of the 2014 Towns Alive National Awards – Britain’s top award for community projects in towns, villages and city neighbourhoods, which also launched today – will be announced at the conference.
The winners of the latest round of the Coastal Communities Fund have been announced – and applications are now open for the next round of funding.
Neighbourhood Planning – a) you’ve heard of it and are considering it, b) you know you want to do it, c) you’ve started doing it.
But whether you’re a), b) or c), you know a little help and guidance would not go amiss – and that is just what this workshop will give you.
