Contractors named on £20bn London Development Panel

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has revealed the 29 developers, housing associations and contractors that will make up the new London Development Panel (LDP2).

The list includes Prospect House Consortium, the JV between developer Stanhope, housing association Network Homes and contractor Laing O’Rourke.

Other companies to have landed places on the panel include Durkan, Engie, Galliford Try and Morgan Sindall (see full list here).

LDP2 replaces the first panel that expired last year, and is aimed at making it quicker and easier for public landowners to bring forward sites for housing.

The new panel is expected to bring forward sites with a value of £20bn and will run for the next four years.

Kier, Rydon, Wates and a Bouygues / Leadbitter joint venture are among the names that made it onto the first LDP but were not appointed this time around.

A joint venture featuring collapsed contractor Carillion as well as Igloo and Genesis was also on the previous panel.

Genesis has secured a place on LDP2 as a sole supplier through its Noting Hill Genesis arm, while Igloo is also on the new panel through a tie-up with Swan Housing Association.

The mayor’s office said the panel will provide a faster way of selecting development partners compared with other forms of procurement, and will deliver cost savings through standardised contracts.

The first sites to be put out to tender for development panel members will be three Transport for London car parks in Harrow, which will be used for a 100 per cent affordable housing development.

The mayor’s office has also revealed that Enfield Council is to progress its £6bn Meridian Water development through LDP2.

Last month the council announced that it was to take control of the 10,000-home scheme, after it terminated Barratt and Segro’s deal to serve as master -developer.

Deputy mayor for housing and residential development James Murray said: “Public land has a vital role to play in tackling the housing crisis, and the new London Development Panel offers public landowners a quicker and more efficient way to bring their sites forward.

“We want to see it playing an important role in building the homes Londoners so desperately need.”
