IHT/DfT award for Woodbrook Village

Woodbrook is Phase One of the new "Brokerstown Village" development to the west of Lisburn, Northern Ireland. The developer is Carvill Group, based in Belfast.

Tim Pharoah was a member of the large collaborative team responsible for planning the 84 hectare site, and also co-author of Manual for Streets. Judges comment:

"At present, Manual for streets is not widely used in Northern Ireland. As such, this scheme is a clear departure from the norm and demonstrates the designers' readiness to innovate to meet the housing needs of today. It is an excellent example of collaboration between a number of key parties, some of whom may have been reluctant to adopt this approach initially. It covers a wide spectrum of route types, from the spine road to local access routes. Movement and place functions are well balanced, with good connections to the surrounding area providing a high degree of permeability. The judges were particularly impressed with the attention given to community cohesion." (IHT Journal, July 2009)
