The company are looking for a “high calibre” person to oversee the project. 

John Spence CBE, chairman oat NEGC said: “Over the last two years the NEGC programme has continued to progress, receiving over £1milllion in funding from the government, and gaining recognition both for its scale and ambition.

“What we are proposing is ground breaking, not just because of the scale but because it is truly about creating cohesive sustainable communities rather than just thousands of houses. We need to seek out the very best talent with the capability commensurate with the ambition.”
