Design a parklet for Aylesbury!
Aylesbury Garden Town is launching a Design a Parklet competition, which is a call for all budding designers in Buckinghamshire to submit a conceptual design proposal for a parklet. The first-prize winner will see their design developed into their unique public parklet design.
Working with local communities and local councils, three sites in spring 2020 will be chosen to install a parklet - which transforms a kerbside area into a place to rest, relax and watch the world go by. (see the example on the right)
From the submitted designs, an independent judging panel will review the entries and select the top three finalists who will receive the following prizes:
First prize: £150 high street shopping voucher + see their design worked up into a public parklet design to be used across Aylesbury.
Second prize: £100 high street shopping voucher.
Third prize: £50 high street shopping voucher.
The competition opened on Thursday 9 January and will close at 5pm on Thursday 13 February 2020. The competition is open to all Buckinghamshire residents aged over 16, and the winner will be announced in February 2020.
