New Pooley Bridge takes home major prize at Civic Trust Awards

07 March 2022

We are equally delighted and proud that New Pooley Bridge has won the Special Award for Community Impact & Engagement at the 2022 Civic Trust Awards! Presented to a scheme that has demonstrated how successful community engagement can help deliver the highest standards of design whilst meeting the needs of local people, this prestigious accolade will find a very special place on the bridge's growing awards shelf.

Community engagement was central to the design process and a vital part of the project's success. The exceptional and meaningful engagement process involved carefully listening to the community and focusing on their common aspirations to conceive an unanimously supported design that met their aspiration for a high-quality crossing to replace the historic bridge.

Hats off to the entire design team for such a wonderful outcome.
