Competition launched to find Wales’s best place

Words: Laura Edgar

The RTPI has launched a competition to find Wales’s Best Place.

The competition, the RTPI said, is designed to celebrate some of Wales’s “most attractive and inspiring places”.

It was established to mark the centenary of the RTPI in 2014. That year, Dundee Waterfront was crowned Scotland’s Best Place while last year, Liverpool Waterfront was voted England’s Greatest Place.

Peter Lloyd, chair of the RTPI Cymru, said: “Your best place could be a natural landscape, a historic town, perhaps a national park. It might be a vibrant and diverse community you are especially proud of, a special place within a city, a stunning cultural quarter or a neighbourhood. You could nominate an area that has undergone significant regeneration and has been transformed by that process. Your nomination could be a place that has changed over time to meet the needs of its communities. There is no single definition of a ‘best place.’ We are leaving that up to you. We want your suggestions.”

Any member of the public can put a nomination forward for Wales’s Best Place. Nominations can be made until 10 June, 2016.

A panel of judges will come up with a shortlist of 10 from the list of nominations, before the public vote on their favourite.

To nominate, use the online form on the RTPI website: English version or Welsh Version.

Alternatively, email nominations to walesbestplace@rtpi.org.uk or tweet/instagram suggestions using @walesbestplace #walesbestplace
