RIBA Awards Panel:

Working closely with the numerous client and funding bodies, English Heritage, LA Conservation and the local community, the architects have painstakingly pieced together a site not only of well-restored and new buildings, but one with a strong narrative.

RICS Awards Panel:

The outcome is that the regeneration of a 19 acre, long-time derelict, heavily contaminated former mining site within an urban area has become a valued community benefit. The project is in all respects a very worthy winner of the Project of the Year Award.


RTPI Awards Panel:

As a member of the Judging Panel this year, I have been impressed by the excellent planning work of many kinds going on all over the region. All the entries have been of a high standard, but, on balance, Heartlands, which has so many different facets to it, stands out as the overall winner.
