A Bridlington scheme is in the running for a prestigious property accolade and a ‘Project of the Year’ title after making it on to the shortlist of the 2015 RICS Pro Yorkshire Awards.

Yorkshire Water’s Bridlington Revised Bathing Water Directive project has been shortlisted for the infrastructure accolade following an investment of £40 million to help the town achieve an ‘Excellent’ bathing water quality standard.

The Bridlington revised Bathing Water Directive scheme is designed to ensure that any Yorkshire Water Services (YWS) assets, which could influence bathing water quality, do not adversely affect achieving the desired standard.

Chair of the RICS Yorkshire and Humber Awards judging panel, Colin Harrop, Partner at Gerald Eve said: “The construction market in the region is improving following relatively lean years.

“The fact that we have a shortlist of over 40 built schemes – many of which are of an exceptional standard - is extremely encouraging.”

RICS received entries from all areas of the region, from pioneering small-scale schemes, through to multi-million pound developments.

The shortlist of 43 built projects are now in with a chance of winning one of eight prestigious accolades and the ‘Project of the Year’ title.

Phil Spencer will host the RICS Pro Yorkshire Awards at the National Railway Museum in York on Friday 15 May. Tickets can be booked online at www.rics.org/awards.
