RESULTS of a competition to find the best buildings in the Tendring area have been revealed.
Eight buildings were shortlisted in the contest to encourage “excellence in the built environment” rather than schemes that do nothing more than meet planning criteria.
Nominations came in from across the district and included a wide variety of developments from retail to residential.
And yesterday, the best new build was announced as Bishop's Park College, Clacton, and the title of best conservation and refurbishment project was given to Maltings Park in Manningtree.
