Nottinghamshire County Council
The relationship here is strengthening each week, and is focused on the more complex individual. The County have a real struggle to house a number of people who present as extremely challenging, and they are openly saying they want to work with a preferred partner to house these individuals. We have discussed in detail what our working model is, and how we would include them, as Commissioners, throughout the whole process. This appeals to them and said it would be the perfect solution that they are not being offered from anywhere else.
We are currently looking at them commissioning into our Yorkshire site as well as being involved in the design of a Nottinghamshire site. In the medium to longer term we aim to be their preferred development partner, and have a strong pipeline across the County.
