Published:  01 December, 2004

Bullring Birmingham picked up the latest in a string of awards when it scooped BCSC’s Supreme Gold Award at the organisation’s annual dinner.

The awards panel said the Birmingham Alliance’s regeneration scheme had “moved the industry forward”.

“Bullring is a scheme that has put new lifeblood into the heart of one of our great cities and forms a key part of the city’s regeneration programme as a whole,” said the judges.

BCSC presented further Gold Awards to new centres Southside (Wandsworth) and Weavers Wharf (Kidderminster).

Golds for established schemes went to Great Western (Swindon), The Fort (Birmingham) and White Rose (Leeds).

Panel chairman Nigel Woolner said the winners demonstrated excellence in retail-led regeneration and a creative response to the new urban agenda.

The dinner, at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, attracted more than 1,400 diners.
