The Mayor of London's preferred developer framework, LDP2, has been operational since 2018 and will deliver all housing on Greater London Authority (GLA)'s publicly-owned land until 2023. The 29 companies appointed are a mixture of private and publicly-owned developers, contractors and Housing Associations. The Panel is widely recognised as London's principal delivery experts, and is expected to deliver mixed-use projects worth up to £20bn worth of mixed-use development in the capital.
Our CEO, Andy Portlock had this to say. "Although we were a part of the first London Developer Panel as part of our Hadley Mace joint venture, this is a step change for us and one which we've been ready to make for some time now. Our being appointed to LDP2 shows that City Hall does not want London to be built solely by the same four or five names, and that a design-led, boutique approach to development with a focus on collaborative working with partners, both public and private, is just as key to addressing the city's housing need."
In no particular order, we would like to offer our thanks to the team who assisted in the bid process. These are: Maccreanor Lavington, Deloitte Real Estate, Buro Happold, Turner and Townsend and TPS Project Management.
‘Public land has a vital role to play in tackling the housing crisis, and the new London Development Panel offers public landowners a quicker and more efficient way to bring their sites forward. We want to see it playing an important role in building the homes Londoners so desperately need.’
