Ullswater Yacht Club to announce competition winner
March 18 2011
Ullswater Yacht Club launched the comp in order to realise their ambition of constructing a clubhouse which better harmonises with the landscape of the Lake District National Park whilst protecting the facility from flooding risks.
It has taken the judging panel a full month to wade through these entries but they have now whittled the hopefuls down to three potential winners.
This trio will be unveiled at a special presentation on Monday at which the National park planning authority and the club will put questions to the competing teams and give their views over which they favour.
Their identity remains top secret till then but amongst the hopefuls is Sutherland Hussey Architects.
Following this meeting the Club will announce the scheme they wish to take forward for full planning permission on March 26.
Subject to approval by Club members at their AGM in October this practice will be officially appointed with construction commencing next winter.
Sutherland Hussey's clubhouse retreats to higher ground, leaving a separate race office exposed at the waters edge
