Aire Valley Growth Corridor, Castleford
We advised Wakefield Metropolitan District Council to develop their outline proposals for this Housing Zone into a Full Business Case submission to Homes England for funding the Housing Infrastructure Fund. We reviewed the infrastructure and sites put forward acting as ‘critical friend’ to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the bid. We then helped them to refine their ideas through a series of workshops to establish linkages and dependencies and help them determine options. We then provided an authorship role for the bid ensuring that the best case was put forward and supported them in the ongoing dialogue with Homes England during the assessment of the bid.
