Development-ready sites will be showcased at an event for house builders aimed at driving up the quality and quantity of new homes in Stoke-on-Trent.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council is hosting a working breakfast on Monday October 15, to highlight locations, support and incentive packages available to developers as part of the new fast track approach to housing development.
Experts from the council’s city regeneration, planning and housing departments will be on hand to provide advice and support and to discuss the first releases of key sites.
Councillor Mohammed Pervez, leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, will host the summit.
He said: “Stoke-on-Trent is transforming. It is a city which has always enjoyed great connectivity and we are taking an innovative approach to respond to the economic challenges we face.
“Last year we launched our Mandate for Change and we are working with house builders to make Stoke-on-Trent a great city to live in.”
Stoke-on-Trent City Council is committed to saying ‘yes’ to good development, offering a red carpet approach to developers with a single point of contact, streamlined planning, access to external funding, incentives and access to labour markets.
Notes: The Mandate for Change is transforming Stoke-on-Trent into a great working city. It is based on four ‘pillars’: making Stoke-on-Trent a great city to live in; supporting and developing existing businesses; working with people to promote independence and healthy lives; and making Stoke-on-Trent the place to bring business.
