MMC Development Management Platform
Helping local authorities unlock the value of under-utilised land for affordable housing.
Up until now, interest in land development has focused on large scale sites and mass housing builds. And yet there are enough smaller scale, brownfield sites in the UK to accommodate 1 million homes. RenKap wanted to increase the perceived value of these sites and make it easy for public sector landowners, like local authorities and the NHS, to become developers in their own right. RenKap has developed a digital platform that will help them not only identify, investigate and assess the viability of brownfield sites, but tender and procure the right teams to develop them, acting as a matchmaking platform for landowners and design and construction SMEs. Where previously small developments like this might have felt too costly, time-consuming and labour intensive, the platform will make it easy, efficient and, ultimately, valuable for public sector to unlock the potential of small brownfield sites and use them to address the affordable housing demand in the UK.
