Certificate of Merit. Not presented this year.
The Harpenden Society Plaque. The prestigious Harpenden Society Plaque for 2014 was awarded to the apartments known as Lea Springs on the corner of Common Lane and the Lower Luton Road at Batford. This has been chosen because not only does it enhance the local environment, it also provides 38 flats for older people, sixteen of shared ownership and the remainder at affordable rents.
Letter of Commendation. A Letter of Commendation was presented to the new Scout Hall at Kinsbourne Green built for the 9th Harpenden Scout Group because not only does it enhance the neighbourhood, it also provides much needed new meeting rooms and a spacious hall - all available for public hire.
Letter of Commendation. A Letter of Commendation was presented to the Old Post House which is on the corner of Arden Grove and Station Road. It is now a block of nine luxury flats developed by Oakbridge Homes and retaining the original well preserved rich red brickwork. It also provides convenient town centre housing.
