Northern Way Developer Toolkit

Back to Projects

GENECON with support from GVA Grimley, led a research study on the mechanisms available to continue to support public-private sector partnership in the delivery of major regeneration projects. The research was undertaken as part of the Northern Way's Regeneration Momentum programme launched in August 2009. It has been informed by a series of consultations held with developers active across the North West, Yorkshire & Humber and North East regions during March to May 2010.

The report's objective is to provide a Toolkit that sets out the ways that the northern RDAs have engaged with the private sector to bring forward key regeneration projects critical for the physical and economic transformation of the north's towns and cities.  Its purpose is twofold - to contribute to the debate, both nationally and across the north, on the need for new investment tools to support traditional approaches, and to provide the development sector with greater visibility on the tools and actions that the public sector can and have taken to support development.
