See how we’re delivering activity across our key areas: planning, enabling development, infrastructure and inward investment.

Building a Bright Future for the North East

Our goal is to ensure the region’s long-term prosperity. 

A fresh regional strategy to increase jobs, create great places to live and work, and improve opportunity for all, allied with a new Mayoral Combined Authority and new funding, will build a sustainable future for the North East. 

A thriving development and investment market is a major contributor supporting the region’s prosperity, making the region more attractive to investors, attracting jobs and creating the right conditions for economic growth.

At Developing Consensus, our membership is focused on working hand in hand with the public sector to unlock barriers to development, creating the right conditions for growth, attracting inward investment and enabling the delivery of new homes, offices and infrastructure for the businesses and residents of the North East.

Unlocking Growth and Investment

Development and investment, alongside an active property market, work hand in hand to drive economic growth. It creates wealth and prosperity, drives investment in our places and helps create new jobs. Developing Consensus and its private sector members focus on helping to deliver quality development schemes across the North East, adopting innovative approaches to planning, funding and construction, delivering maximum value. 

Members collaborate closely with public sector partners across the region to help reduce risk, break down key barriers to development, simplify delivery and create conditions where the right space can be delivered in the right locations. 

This collaboration is instrumental in helping to create attractive and inspiring places to live and work, delivering economic growth to help unlock the region’s future potential.
