Local Government News has named international landscape consultancy firm terra firma as the overall winner in the Urban Green Space category of the relaunched Street Design Awards.
The firm received the accolade for their work on the Muslim War Cemetery Peace Garden in Woking, Surrey, on behalf of Woking Borough Council and Horsell Common Preservation Society.
Founded in 1917, Woking’s Muslim Burial Ground commemorates the three million Indian service personnel who fought alongside the Allied troops during the First and Second World Wars. Renovation of the site took place between 2012-15, with terra firma responsible for designing the new memorial garden.
