Lib Dems vow to build 20,000 affordable homes

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Lib Dems vow to build 20,000 affordable homes previous nextHousing MarketLib Dems vow to build 20,000 affordable homesThe Liberal Democrats would tackle the “crippling undersupply of housing” in Wales, says Peter Black AM.The Negotiator22nd September 20150532 Views The Liberal Democrats has announced plans to develop 20,000 affordable homes in Wales by 2021 if the party is in Government after the 2016 assembly election.Lib Dem AM Peter Black (left) said his party would tackle the “crippling undersupply of housing” in Wales by using new borrowing powers and by abolishing plans for an M4 relief road.The target to build 20,000 affordable homes over the five-year period is double that set by the existing Labour Government in Wales.After launching a housing supply pact with the with Community Housing Cymru last year promising to build 10,000 new affordable homes during the terms of the Government, Housing and Regeneration Minister, Carl Sargeant, said, “Increasing the supply of homes in Wales is my top priority and I am committed to working with developers, housing associations, local authorities and financiers to bring forward innovative schemes that will increase the supply of good quality affordable homes.”Over half of the Welsh Government’s affordable housing target – set at 7,500 homes – was met within the first two years in power, with most properties delivered by housing associations.Meanwhile, Adam Hesse, Director at Home Counties land broker Aston Mead, has expressed his concern that a rise in affordable housing targets could hamper house building targets across the UK following a recent High Court ruling.Following a legal challenge by Reading Borough Council and West Berkshire District Council, the ruling by Justice David Holgate forced Ministers to scrap guidance which excluded developments of 10 homes or fewer from the requirement to provide or contribute to affordable housing provision. The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has said it will appeal the High Court’s ruling.Aston Mead Director Adam Hesse (left) said, “Frankly, this ruling by the High Court is absolutely insane. There’s no question that it will lead to fewer homes being built as a result. It has already stopped a stack of proposals in their tracks and a lot of sites in our pipeline are now being renegotiated.“Sites that may well have been suitable for ten units will now be reduced to whatever the new threshold is, so full use won’t be made of the brownfield land available. Consequently it will mean less income for districts and boroughs – the very same organisations fighting for a change to the guidance in the first place. It’s utter madness!”Hesse now fears that the ruling could make it harder for many developers to meet their house building targets, particularly smaller construction firms.He added, “No one doubts that the country desperately needs more homes. It is already falling far short of current house-building targets. A ruling like this is a significant blow for smaller residential developers and will only serve to ensure that those targets are even harder to meet.”Lib Dems vow Peter Black Lib Dem 000 affordable homes 20 Adam Hesse affordable homes Aston Mead building September 22, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Leading property logbook platform Chimni seeks £150,000 to fund development

first_imgChimni, one of the leading logbooks providers in the UK, is seeking to raise £150,000 to fund its development with an offer that will value the firm at up to £1 million.Chimni is one of the founding members of the Residential Logbook Association which has been talking to the housing ministry about a national roll-out of logbooks for every home.The initiative is proving popular with ministers, who see logbooks as a way to speed up and simplify property sales.Chimni is offering backers 15% of the company through two HMRC-approved tax-incentive schemes, which give investors a 30-50% tax break if they take a stake in early start-up tech firms.The London-based company wants to develop its website and app, automate more of its information upload processes and launch its first revenue -generating product – a sales pack for property vendors developed in partnership with conveyancing platform SearchAcumen.BootstrappedThe company has been bootstrapped by founder Nigel Walley until now, but he says the business needs more investment to help it develop, including a push to integrate its logbook into the home buying and selling process.  This will require integration with both estate agencies’ and conveyancers’ CRM systems.“We’ve been knocking on industry doors unsuccessfully for three years,” he tells The Negotiator. “But the last six months have delivered real progress in our discussions with government and the industry.“We now have real projects to work on and integrations to build – hence the new round of funding.“Because it’s our first fundraise we also have a full complement of SEIS and EIS tax rebate to offer. if anyone is thinking of taking a stake in a property logbook initiative, this is a great opportunity.”Find out more about the fundraise.Residential Logbook Association (RLBA) digital logbooks for UK properties nigel walley chimni January 6, 2021Nigel Lewis2 commentsJames Gibbs, Gibbs Gillespie Gibbs Gillespie 6th January 2021 at 9:38 amNO NO NO, just another jobsworth creating more bureaucracy for everyone and funding his own retirement.

National Signing Day brings colleges to Hudson Several local high schools…

first_img1 / 2  DELAWARE STATE BOUND – Lincoln defensive stalwart Alex Lozano is all smiles, wearing his Delaware State hat after signing his National Letter of Intent last week.  2 / 2  SOARING AHEAD – From left, Jacob Gonzalez (Fork Union Military), Harrison Fernandez (Pace) and Eleyzer Olivery (also Pace) sign their letters of intent last week. ❮ ❯ Alex Lozano wanted to prove everyone wrong.“A lot of people were telling me that I would never make it,” said the ferocious linebacker/defensive end for the Lincoln High School football team. “I didn’t listen to anyone. I knew that my coaches and teammates believed in me. That’s all that mattered. They all helped me to stay on track, to go after everything.” It was a trip to the University of Delaware that got Lozano thinking about another school.“It was June 12 of last year,” Lozano said. “I only played four games as a junior, so I really didn’t have anything to go off. We were at a camp at the University of Delaware when someone asked if I wanted to visit Delaware State. I went to the camp there and did well and I got the [scholarship] offer the next day.”The rest, as they say, is history.“Lucky me,” Lozano said. “I was able to get the offer. It means a lot to me. I worked hard in the classroom to get good grades to qualify [as a freshman playing NCAA Division I]. I always got the encouragement from my coaches that I could succeed. It’s really a dream come true.”Last week, Lozano was one of several Hudson County products who put their John Hancock on an NCAA National Letter of Intent, which basically means that the football player is willing to accept the scholarship to their respective schools.It’s basically a day for the schools themselves to strut their stuff and show off a little school pride. Most of the athletes themselves had made their verbal commitments ages ago.A guy like Lozano had offers from other NCAA Division I-AA caliber schools like the University of Maine, Stony Brook and Monmouth, but settled on Delaware State.“They made me feel like I was part of the family there,” Lozano said. “It’s a place where I can fit in.”Several of Lozano’s teammates signed on to play at either the NAIA, the JUCO junior college or Division II level.Kamani Addison is headed to Washburn University in Kansas; Terrance Barfield, who had been at Monroe Junior College, has signed on with Alabama A&M; and Sharman Nalls, who played both at Lincoln and St. Anthony, is headed to the University of New Haven.It was another stellar signing day at St. Peter’s Prep, as nine players announced their intentions to play at the next level.Leading the way was quarterback two-time Hudson Reporter Offensive Player of the Year Johnathan Lewis, who signed his letter to Rutgers; receiver/defensive back Jorge Portorreal, who signed on with Lehigh and standout lineman Ben Petrula, who signed his letter to attend Boston College.Petrula was amazed to be able to share the day with so many of his teammates.“It’s really awesome,” Petrula said. “It’s just starting to sink in now that I made it official. I hoped that my parents wouldn’t have to spend any money on college and now I’m going to a great school to play football there.”The Boston College roster already features Prep grads Jonathan Hilliman, Michael Giacone and Charlie Callinan.“It’s huge,” Petrula said. “They’re already part of the family there. I’ve always believed that Prep is like a brotherhood. I’ll have a chance to play right away and that’s big for me. It’s amazing to think that we all could have a day like this. Coming to Prep definitely prepared me for a day like this. I think the school prepared everyone else as well.”Prep will send four players to Ivy League football, namely Mitchell Jones (Cornell), Dakari Falconer and Masaki Aerts (Dartmouth) and Benji Mowatt (Pennsylvania).Hudson Reporter Defensive Player of the Year Harrison Fernandez of Union City signed on with Pace University, as did teammate Eleyzer Olivery, who originally gave a verbal commitment to Delaware State, but changed his mind. Fellow Soaring Eagle standout Jacob Gonzalez is going to Fork Union Military Academy.Rashad Brandon, the former St. Anthony defensive tackle who had a great season at ASA College, signed with the University of Missouri.Hudson Catholic sent standout receiver Satchel Moore to Davidson College, while former Hawk great running back Syhiem Simmons, who left the school and transferred to a school in Alabama last August, signed on to play defensive back at Rutgers.Damon Small, the fine defensive tackle who played for Bayonne in 2014, signed on with Mississippi Valley State after stops at Merced Junior College and Lackawanna, where he really shined as a defensive tackle after playing tight end at Bayonne.All in all, it was a great crop of college recruits homegrown right here in Hudson County. – Jim HagueJim Hague can be reached via e-mail at [email protected]center_img ×  1 / 2  DELAWARE STATE BOUND – Lincoln defensive stalwart Alex Lozano is all smiles, wearing his Delaware State hat after signing his National Letter of Intent last week.  2 / 2  SOARING AHEAD – From left, Jacob Gonzalez (Fork Union Military), Harrison Fernandez (Pace) and Eleyzer Olivery (also Pace) sign their letters of intent last week. ❮ ❯last_img read more

Starbucks drives in new motorway outlet concept

first_imgRoad-users will soon find it easier to pick up a coffee and a pastry after Starbucks revealed plans to open nearly 60 new outlets at motorway service stations and petrol forecourts.The company, which has 661 outlets in the UK, has signed a licensing deal with forecourt operator Euro Garages to open 30 new-concept ’drive-through’ coffee shops by 2013. The coffee chain has also announced that it will open 29 stores at Welcome Break motorway service stations over the next 16 months.The first drive-through store opened earlier this month in Deeside, North Wales, after the concept was piloted successfully in Cardiff. The store features a conventional sit-down Starbucks store and a drive-through facility, where customers drive up to a touchscreen terminal to place their order, before collecting it at a service window. Euro Garages finance director Martin Ashcroft said: “Alongside coffee, freshly baked goods will be a crucial part of our offering to customers at our drive-through stores.”The deal with Welcome Break marks Starbucks’ first foray into motorway service stations, with the brand replacing Welcome Break’s Coffee Primo own-brand stores.The first sites to be revamped will be at Oxford Services on the M40 and Hopwood Park on the M42 these will open by the end of March or early April.last_img read more
