Elevate, the housing pathfinder organisation for east Lancashire, is holding a competition called Sustainable Stars to find the finest examples of buildings with 'green' principles spanning Blackburn with Darwen, Rossendale, Hyndburn, Pendle and Ribble Valley.
Applications are sought from planners, architects and building professionals from both the private and public sector, and can include collaborations of several agencies for one specific build.
There are six award categories; sustainable design/planning, use of natural materials, use of renewable/sustainable technology, renovation project, heritage conversion and new build.
The winners will be announced at the Constructing the Future conference in Burnley on 30 October.
