The finalists of the Kent Design and Development Awards have been

Maidstone among the winners.
The awards, jointly organised and sponsored by DHA Planning, Kent
County Council and Ward Homes, celebrate the best new buildings and
developments across Kent over the past two years.

bungalows incorporating contemporary design and environmentally
friendly features, was named winner in the Major Residential

Maidstone Museum's new East Wing was also Highly Commended in
the Community Public Buildings category.
KCC leader Paul Carter said: “Good design and quality
developments are essential if we are to continue to maximise on the
attractiveness and uniqueness of Kent. The calibre of entries was
extremely high this year. The quality and skill that went into
these buildings and developments is truly outstanding, and they all
deserve to be celebrated."
