Willerby Landscapes bags top BALI award

Willerby Landscapes has been awarded the top accolade at the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) awards.

The BALI Grand Award was handed to Willerby Landscapes at a ceremony on Friday (5 December) for its work on Chavasse Park, Liverpool.

BALI awards presenter and TV gardener David Domoney joined comedian Clive Anderson at the event to hand over 30 landscaping awards.

Chavasse Park is part of the 42-acre (17ha) Paradise Street Project, led by developer Grosvenor Estates, which includes retail, housing and leisure.

Willerby Landscapes managing director John Melmoe said: "Since the opening of the development Chavasse Park has been exceptionally well used by the people of Liverpool.

"Recognition of a high level of achievement from within the industry has a positive motivational effect on our staff."

The judges called the scheme "outstanding" and a "fine example of urban renewal".

Building Design Partnership (BDP) carried out the design work on the project.

Willerby Landscapes has been retained to look after the site for its first 12 months.
