-Oasis Academy in Don Valley, which opened in September last year, is shortlisted to win the regeneration accolade. The £16m project has changed previously developed land into a community focused academy school.
-Yorkshire waters Bio Energy Digestion Scheme in Blackburn Meadows is in the running to win the infrastructure award. The £23m project is shortlisted for generating energy to reduce Sheffield’s carbon footprint whilst acting as a waste facility for over 800,000 people in the South Yorkshire Region.
