Judges’ Comments

“The Ironworks project involved continuous engagement with the local community throughout, informing many small changes and mitigations to the plan.  The outcome is a mix of streets and spaces having different characters, and new homes with varying typologies, alongside a large central green space is for children’s play, access to nature and management of water. While still in its early development, we believe it has the potential to provide a coherent and lively new neighbourhood in Cambridge, building on Mill Road’s origins and spirit, while making a significant contribution to local housing need.”
