Hyas have supported the City Council for over 3 years, originally setting up project management and governance structures, providing key milestones and defining critical workstreams and the resource needs to deliver the DPD in a masterplan driven way. Support has subsequently focussed on working closely with the Council and all main partners, to prepare a concept plan, vision and masterplan framework, that will underpin the DPD and define the type of place to be delivered.

St Cuthbert’s will be delivered in accordance with garden city principles and Hyas have assisted the Council in interpreting these to ensure a sustainable, high quality new community is delivered for the City. As well as masterplanning and planning support, Hyas are helping to develop innovative models of funding and delivery, including securing several high profile grant funding allocations the most notable of which has been a £107m Housing Infrastructure Fund allocation.
