City Deal, Lancashire
devolution, project management, partnership work
Stuart and Mark led the HCA’s input into the multi-agency, forward thinking proposals that became the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal. The deal involved bold commitments on behalf of all the partners to provide funding to deliver infrastructure in advance of development and to recycle the proceeds from development to deliver further investment and growth.
As original architects to the deal Stuart and Mark, were pivotal in project management, financial forecasting, negotiations, governance and design of the deal. The deal has produced transformational infrastructure improvements and radically improved the provision of new housing and employment space. In addition to their role in establishing the city deal, Stuart and Mark have been instrumental in delivering the 11 HCA owned housing sites contained within it.
