We’re working hand-in-hand with the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to help tackle the capital’s housing shortage.
Linden Homes’ parent company, Galliford Try, has been included among 25 companies to make up a new “one-stop” housing group meant to speed up the delivery of homes.
The London Development Panel establishes a framework agreement between its members that enables public landowners, including London’s boroughs and government bodies, to award individual contracts faster and at lower cost.
This one-stop route to development is expected to see the panel procure up to £5 billion of housing-led mixed-use development on public land over its four-year term.
Mr Johnson said: “The demand for housing in the capital is reaching unprecedented levels making the potential for development on public land far too important to ignore.
“The London Development Panel will act as a one-stop shop for public land owners in the capital, making it quicker, easier and cheaper for them to bring their land forward for development, increasing the number of homes being built, creating jobs and boosting the capital’s economy.”
Linden Homes Divisional MD with responsibility for Group Special Projects, Tom Nicholson, said: “Solving London’s housing shortage is a priority for the London mayor and we’re delighted to have been asked to help. By working together we can deliver much quicker the homes that families need.”
