Paul James, leader of Gloucester City Council, on the bright future for Gloucester city centre:

There is, of course, a long way still to go on this journey.
This is the legal framework – or what has been colloquially termed our ‘marriage contract.’ Public consultation will take place, a planning application will need to be approved and the land package has to be put together before work can begin on the ground.

In Stanhope we have a company with 25 years worth of development experience and which has delivered more than £10billion worth of projects around the country. Full Story Here
