It’s about consensus

Councils can be more entrepreneurial. I do a lot of work in my "day job" with the Association for Public Service Excellence and they're all about income generation, local authorities doing anything they can as a competent authority under the Localism Act to generate income which they then redistribute to other areas [of operation].

With Besson Street we're putting land in. We don't do that very often but we're doing it this time because it's a market disruptor but it's also an income generator and it's improving the private rented sector.
