Meadowhall in Sheffield secured the Sustainability award, Intu’s Lakeside scheme in Kent was named Catering and Leisure Destination of the Year, while Woking Shopping was named Refurbishment/Extension of the Year (over £5m).

Aycliffe Town Centre won the Refurbishment/Extension of the Year (under £5m) award.
