One of our priorities is to identify land for new homes and employment. This will create jobs and better places to work and live.
We continue to lead the way in the UK in redeveloping brownfield land across our region. In collaboration with our public and private sector partners, our job is to try to remove barriers to make sure land is being used for the public benefit. With the support of our partners we have already brought hundreds of acres of brownfield land back into use, after decades of being unused. As we continue to work closely with government and businesses, we remain one of the national leaders in investing in schemes that build high quality business and housing developments.
We’re looking at what ‘affordable’ means in the housing market. We are making sure buildings are built using innovative construction methods that mean they’re completed quicker and more sustainably. This speeds up moving towards a greener economy and a greater number of zero carbon homes.
We also use our expertise every day to help make sure new homes are built close to public transport services and encourage schemes to employ local people and businesses.
We continue to seek more funding for schemes which support new homes and jobs in environmentally friendly industries as we continue to show what good investment looks like and lead the country by example.
We bring together people to work on the big challenges for the region. We work with:
