Morgan Sindall secures place on £20 billion framework to create new homes for Londoners

NEWS

Morgan Sindall has been appointed to the £20 billion London Development Panel 2, under a partnership with its Morgan Sindall Group sister companies, leading homes developer Lovell, and mixed-use development and urban regeneration specialist, Muse Developments.

The panel will accelerate the development of new houses for Londoners on public land through Trinity Woolwich, a £500 million major estate regeneration programme in partnership with PA Housing and the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Following a rigorous selection process, the trio of Morgan Sindall Group companies joins 28 other panel members on the new framework.

The panel has been established by The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and will operate over the next four years, with the potential for a year’s extension – helping to bring forward more homes on surplus publicly-owned land.

The mechanism is available to owners of public land in Greater London, providing them with a quick and efficient way of selecting development partners to deliver homes across a range of tenures, including housing for open market sale, affordable homes and private rented housing.

Sean Bradley, managing director of Morgan Sindall's London and Northern Home Counties Region, said: “The London Development Panel 2 will ease the way for the provision of much-needed new homes in the capital - helping to secure the future of generations of Londoners.

“We welcome the opportunity to bring our long-standing experience working with leading public and private sector partners to construct outstanding developments that enrich and invigorate communities to this important regeneration programme. We’re pleased and proud to have been appointed to the framework in partnership with our Morgan Sindall Group sister companies, Muse Developments and Lovell.”

Nigel Franklin, joint managing director of Muse Developments, said: “We’re proud to be working in partnership with the Greater London Authority (GLA) and two of our sister companies at Morgan Sindall Group on the latest London Development Panel, which will bring forward a number of mixed-use regeneration schemes to the capital.

“We’re currently working with the GLA on a number of major projects and look forward to extending our relationship into future opportunities. It’s these Public Private Partnerships that are key to delivering a successful programme of regeneration and true placemaking, which benefits the wider community.”

Lovell managing director, Steve Coleby, commented: “I’m delighted that our comprehensive construction and development offer and strong record in successfully bringing forward residential development on publicly-owned land have been recognised by our appointment to London’s new Development Panel. As members of leading construction and regeneration group Morgan Sindall Group, we are able to access an exceptionally wide range of expertise and services. We look forward to using our skills to deliver urgently-needed new homes across the Greater London area.”

Lovell was also a member of the first London Development Panel which expired in 2017.

Major schemes in London and the South East by Lovell, Muse Developments and Morgan Sindall include Trinity Woolwich, a £500 million major estate regeneration programme by Lovell in partnership with PA Housing and the Royal Borough of Greenwich; Hale Wharf, Tottenham – a £100 million residential-led regeneration project, providing up to 500 new homes, modern business space and canal-side public realm, as part of Muse Developments’ Waterside Places joint venture with the Canal and River Trust; Morgan Sindall has recently delivered the London Borough of Southwark’s largest school refurbishment programme since the Victorian era - creating a new generation of school places for London children.

Morgan Sindall has also recently handed over a £70 million scheme to transform Lambeth Town Hall and its civic buildings for Muse Developments, and project partner Lambeth Council. Morgan Sindall secured a Preservation & Rejuvenation Award at the Construction Excellence SECBE Awards for the scheme, which involved the comprehensive refurbishment of the Grade II listed Town Hall in Brixton and the construction of a new six-storey energy efficient civic building with a customer centre and council offices.
