We want to partner with ambitious local authorities and other public bodies who want to attract investment, build homes and support enterprise. Together, we can create exceptional places.
We’re a unique partnership. In bringing together Homes England, Legal & General and Muse, we are demonstrating the combined potential of public and private sector regeneration expertise. We’ve shown over 17 years that it’s possible to commit for the long-term while still delivering at pace. It’s an approach that’s allowed us to see potential where others may not and to transform even the most complex sites.”
