The unspoken rule

That’s why you don’t come across many JVs between councils and developers that all sides would want to do again.

Closer together

We’ve got a formal partnership for this whole growth corridor, to unlock 15,000 homes but also deliver thousands of new jobs and industrial space.

Radical vision

If you look at our major sites, we have a 100% success record in getting them through the planning process on time. We are confident.

Stick together

The only members of the Labour Party who are in power, and have been since 2010, and will be until 2024, are local government: councillors, cabinet members and leaders.

The next big prize

People are chomping at the bit for it now, rather than resisting it. That serves us well.

Rising tide

It sticks in the craw to hear that local authorities don’t give planning permissions. That’s just tosh.

The jury is out

That was a contributory factor to why the regeneration process went well. It helped get the residents’ offer right and having the right principles in place.

Taking a lead

Even in the most vibrant and prosperous places, developers like to see the local authority put their money where their mouth.

Not good bedfellows

So you have this aspiration, but you’re in danger of killing the whole thing.

Height can work

With the right partner we can take a few more risks.
