A LANDMARK building in a Herefordshire market town which re-opened following a lengthy restoration last year is in line for two 'property Oscars'.

The 15th century Master's House in Ledbury underwent a £.3.2m restoration allowing it to become a multi-use building housing a library, council offices and the town's John Masefield archive.

The work carried out to transform the Grade II listed venue has resulted in it being nominated in this year's RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) Awards where it will come up against other schemes from across the West Midlands.

Among them, and closer to home, is the Flatpack Crosslam Workshops which are flat pack timber structures situated on the Holme Lacy campus of Herefordshire and Ludlow College.

They are primarily for the maintenance of tractors and other agricultural machinery.

The Flatpack Workshops are nominated in the Design through Innovation category, while the Master's House is a nominee in both the Building Conservation, and Community Benefit categories.

The awards, known as the property Oscars, will be held on May 20 at Villa Park in Birmingham.

Richard Moxon, who is chairman of the judging panel, said: "This year there have been some great large scale projects across the region.

"Our entrants this year really highlight the West Midland’s move towards a devolved region, highlighting the fantastic work our region is doing in all categories."

The category winners will then battle it out for the Project of the Year title which was awarded to Longbridge Town Centre Regeneration Phase 1 last year.
