Councils welcome non-London developer at Sitematch
Fri 8th March 2013, 1:30 pm
This week’s Sitematch event was attended by a Midlands-based developer called MarCity.
The Solihull company was founded in 1984 and has undertaken mostly residential schemes across the West Midlands.
Mike Melly, director at Marcity, met with several councils at the event on 5 March. "We have established a London office having secured some sites to deliver over 100 units, and we're actively driving forward the Governments targets for affordable housing, through our own partnership status with the Homes and Community Agency.
"Sitematch London was a great platform for MarCity to meet local authorities and introduce ourselves and get a good understanding of their ambitions and key drivers.
"We found the event very helpful as the local authorities we met were very receptive and expressed their interest in follow-up meetings and gave us the details of the people we should contact to discuss our current schemes."
