This will include work developed or supported by local authorities, internal drainage boards and the Environment Agency, as well as community level initiatives.
To be eligible, the work must have been completed between 1 January 2018 and 31 December 2018.
What is ‘complete’?
For all nominations put forward for consideration, the definition of complete means that the work referenced has been delivered and can demonstrate that it provides an active public benefit. For non-construction work or research projects, there must be a demonstrable outcome which, if applied, will lead to a beneficial outcome.
The Environment Agency aims to lead the way in:-
- The management of health and safety and environmental stewardship
- The use of sustainable construction techniques,
- The management of environmental risk and care for the environment
- The procurement of public sector construction projects
- Working with people and communities to create a better place
Therefore all nominations should demonstrate consideration of the above.
