Homes: council seeking investors for new project

Inside Housing magazine said that law firm K&L Gates has put together a funding model which would allow the borough to draw development capital into its housing revenue account without breaching Treasury borrowing limits.

Last year, the council completed a £76 million deal to build 447 affordable homes with institutional fund manager Long Harbour.

The council is running a competition to find backers for the scheme and is looking for an investment of between £80 million and £100 million, the magazine said.
