GMI Property help form Leeds City Developers Consortium

News / 16 November 2017

GMI Property have formed part of the Leeds City Region Developers Consortium and have issued a response to Central Government regarding the consultation on a new ‘standardised methodology’ for calculating housing need through their planning consultants Johnson Mowat. The proposals put forward by Central Government seek to rebalance affordability ratios and would see suppressed levels of housing growth in the North of England. Whilst we welcome the move toward a more standard approach to calculating housing need, we consider the methodology should seek to facilitate a more positive link between housing and economic growth.
