Bellway said in an update that it sold 2,332 properties in the six months to the end of January, a rise of 3.8 per cent on last year. The FTSE 250-listed firm has shifted its property mix away from flats in the past year, which has helped push its average property sale price to £168,000 at a time when property values have dipped. Around 65 per cent of Bellway customers currently buy more traditional homes, though finance director Alistair Leitch said this is likely to stabilise as a swathe of flats in East London start to sell in the run-up to the Olympics. Leitch said the overall pick-up in sales had potential to continue in 2011. “The early signs that we’ve had in January are encouraging,” he said.“Can we keep that momentum going through to Easter? … As long as we don’t have anything untoward happening to the UK economy or to the world political situation, then we should be okay,” Leitch said.Bellway shares rose 2.8 per cent to close at 657.5p yesterday.

Hawkins\Brown has completed the former Highmead Estate in Angel Edmonton, now renamed Prowse Court and Lord Graham Mews, which is being redeveloped as part of a comprehensive investment programme designed to kick start the regeneration of the London Borough of Enfield.Save this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!Section 3BThe scheme includes 118 new residential units of which 22 are houses. A health centre and a new community facility, designed by Hawkins\Brown also occupy the site. Located in an area of social and economic deprivation, the site interfaces with both a town centre high street and streets of two storey terrace houses. The scheme seeks to make a positive statement of regeneration through a distinctive architectural form and a responsive urban site planning approach.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerGreg Moss, Partner at Hawkins\Brown, said: “This project has furthered our understanding of regeneration. From achieving strategic planning goals, attracting a developer and making designs marketable to homeowners and commercial tenants, we know what will work in different contexts. This project shows that we can create appropriate new identities and emphasise place making. We know how to control density to heighten the drama of the public realm and create intimacy and defensibility in private areas. Similarly, we can manipulate mass and scale to produce landmarks, define site edges and assemble the theatre of townscape”.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerPeter George at Enfield Council said: “Prowse Court represents the first physical manifestation of the regeneration of Angel Edmonton. The objective from the outset was the delivery of a landmark building; the design by Hawkins\Brown not only exceeds this objective but the inclusion of essential health and community facilities will mean that Prowse Court will be a real focus for the whole community”.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerRichard Cherry, Chief Executive of Partnerships at Countryside said: “Countryside thoroughly enjoyed working with our partners Enfield Council, Newlon, the architect Hawkins\Brown and the community in creating a beautiful new landmark development, which brings much needed affordable housing to the area as well as a new GP surgery, retail and community centre. We wish all the new residents, retail occupants and users of the community centre a very big welcome”.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerThe redevelopment reinforces the high street by replacing existing shops with new, better serviced units, by aligning the residential block along the street edge and making a dramatic contribution to the townscape. At the same time, the orientation of the flatted block is changed from east-west to north-south to optimize solar gain and improve daylighting. To the rear Hawkins\Brown introduced new, energy efficient (Code 4) houses to complete the Victorian suburban fabric that was disrupted by development in the 1960s.Through a tender process, Enfield selected Countryside as the preferred Development Partner to whom Hawkins\Brown was novated.

Futurebuilders England — Tender Fund

first_imgFuturebuilders England is moving towards a funding process that involves less form filling and quicker decision making. Good to their word, a new interest-free loan fund has been announced with those characteristics. Called the Tender Fund, three-year loans of between £3000 and £50,000 will be available to help third sector organisations in England meet the cost of tendering for public sector contracts. The guidelines are quite flexible, and the money can be used to cover tender-related costs such as staff replacement, legal fees, getting professional advice and/or gaining financial expertise.The Fund has been set up in response to feedback from the third sector saying that smaller organisations in particular find it hard to justify or meet the costs of tendering for contracts when the outcome is not guaranteed. £1 million is available overall, and loans will be interest free as long as they are repaid within 3 years. The amount that can be borrowed is dependent on the size of the contract being tendered for, up to a maximum loan of £50,000.The basic eligibility criteria are similar to those used for other Futurebuilders investments:• Applications are invited from voluntary and community organisations, charities, social enterprises, cooperatives and mutuals;• You must be preparing to tender for a specific public service contract;• You must be unable to secure a loan of this type from a commercial lender;• You must be reasonably likely to win the tender and be able to repay the loan;• You must be working to benefit service users in England.For the purposes of the Fund a public service contract is defined as “any contract directly held with a statutory body, such as local authorities, PCTs, or Quangos that receive their funding from the state, including Europe”.The contract can be a new one or the renegotiation of an existing one.Any problems?There are two issues that need to be addressed by applicants to this Fund. The first is that this is a loan.Many people would prefer a grant, but Futurebuilders argues that integrating the cost of tendering into the contract price should be part of your business development. The loan is meant to help with your cash flow, not remove the need for a properly costed contract in the first place. Futurebuilders also believes that if you take a loan it is a demonstration of your confidence in your future financial position.The second issue follows from the first.Since this Fund is targeted at organisations seeking tendered contracts, there is the risk that too much support for the third sector alone could be regarded by other sectors as a breach of fair competition rules. A grant would almost certainly be deemed to be stepping over the line; a loan might just be OK. And it is not just an issue across sectors: what if two or more third sector organisations bid for the same contract but for one reason or another only one of them receives Futurebuilders’ support and the others fail in their loan applications? Could Futurebuilders be regarded as distorting the competition? Time will tell and it is likely that this Fund will attract some criticism from those barred from accessing it.You want to go ahead anyway?The loans have to be repaid whether your tender is successful or not. You can choose how best to repay, and in what amounts, over the three years of the loan entitlement.Loans will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis until the money runs out. If it looks as if the demand will be high Futurebuilders will make assessments based on urgency and the quality of your relationship with the potential purchaser.The application process.Applications will mainly be processed/assessed over the phone. A meeting might be necessary too. During the calls you will have to provide:• Reasons for your application;• Historic financial information and up-to-date management accounts;• The costs that the loan will be covering;• The contact details of the purchaser, where appropriate;• Evidence of why you believe you stand a strong chance of winning the contract;• An explanation of how you plan to repay the loan.There is no application. Instead you should call Futurebuilders on 0191 261 5200 or e-mail [email protected] details are on the Web site atwww.futurebuilders-england.org.uk/content/Funding/TenderFund.aspxClosing date: Applications dealt with as received.This information is provided by Fundinginformation.org, the online news, information and support service for fundraisers and funding advisers throughout the UK.

Baltimore FIST fights anti-youth law

first_imgA new curfew law penalizes youth of color.WW photo: Sharon BlackThe Baltimore chapter of Fight Imperialism/Stand Together took to the streets outside City Hall on June 2 to protest a repressive youth curfew law being considered by the City Council that evening. Several other progressive Baltimore groups joined the FIST action to oppose the law.During the City Council meeting, protesters draped a banner from the second-floor balcony saying “No youth curfew” and then marched out of the chambers chanting the same slogan. Despite popular protest, the council passed the law by a vote of 13-2.The curfew law, among the strictest in the country, is the latest in a long line of failures of the city government to serve the interests of Baltimore’s youth. Many recreation centers have been closed down over the last several years. Black and Latino/a people in Baltimore, who make up two-thirds of the population, will be the most affected.Currently, people 17 years old or younger are not allowed outside their homes after 11 p.m. The new law will force younger teens to also be inside, as early as 9 p.m., or face harsh penalties. These include being forcefully taken off the streets by police and brought to several youth detention centers that the city government intends to set up. Parents must then come to the centers to pick up their children and pay a fine of up to $500.For a working family barely making ends meet, any fine, and especially $500, is unacceptable and could potentially spell financial ruin for the family.This law will also undoubtedly be selectively enforced against people of color.In addition to facing simple racial profiling and the difficulty of police correctly determining the age of a young person at night, many poor Black and Latino/a youth lack IDs that could potentially prove their compliance with the law. This has led the ACLU to refer to the measure as an unjust “show your papers law.”The Baltimore Police Department has a long history of racist violence. Recently a 19-year-old Black youth, George King, was tasered to death by a police officer at a local hospital. Given this flagrant use of excessive force on a young man, how can anyone expect this expanded curfew law to end in anything but more police violence against youth?At a time when society is failing these poor youth, the city government shows which side it’s on by investing money in detention centers rather than recreation centers and jobs.In order to continue the struggle against the curfew and empower youth to fight back, FIST has set up a “Curfew Hotline” to gather information and document the stories of youth who become victims of this repressive law. These actions mark only the beginning of FIST’s fight!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF asked the main presidential candidates to give a six-point undertaking to respect journalistic freedom, independence and diversity on the basis of the Tunisian constitution and Tunisia’s international obligations as regards the freedom to inform.The 13 candidates who agreed all affirmed their desire to continuing supporting the “information and democracy” political process. It will be up to the future president to propose legislative initiatives designed to protect journalists and the independence of the media’s regulatory bodies, while backing civil society’s work in support of the media.“The route to press freedom in Tunisia has clearly been plotted, but it must be protected and paved, a task that the future president must guarantee as guardian of the constitution,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“In Tunisia’s name, the late President Beji Caïd Essebsi undertook, along with 11 other heads of state and government at the Paris Peace Forum on 11 November, to support the Information and Democracy Initiative. These leaders gave a commitment based on the Declaration issued by the Information and Democracy Commission, which was created at RSF’s initiative. Published on 5 November 2018, the commission’s declaration proclaimed that the global online information and communication space should be regarded as a common good of humankind, one in which information freedom, diversity and integrity must be guaranteed.”Tunisia has gone from being ranked 164th in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index in 2011 to 72nd now.The list of signatories in alphabetical order : 1 – Said Aidi2 – Yousef Chahed3 – Salma Elloumi4 – Elies Fakhfekh5 – Hamma el Hammami6 – Neji Jalloul7 – Mahdi Jomaa8 – Mohsen Marzouk9 – Mohamed Moncef Marzouki10 – Abdelfatteh Mourou11 – Mohamed Lotfi Mraihi12 – Mongi Rahoui13 – Abdelkrim Zbidi Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts November 11, 2020 Find out more News to go further Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa Activities in the fieldProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independence WomenInternetCitizen-journalistsWhistleblowersFreedom of expression RSF_en News Follow the news on Tunisia Eleven organizations from civil society create the Forum on Information & Democracy, a structural response to information disorder Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists News November 12, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

Protective barriers were installed on July 11, when the city implemented its first phase of outdoor dining along Colorado Boulevard. This was after outdoor dining guidelines were issued and an online application process was implemented to make it easier for businesses to have protective barriers installed.On July 18, the second phase of the project was implemented after Ellis Equipment offered to supply the K-rails and a purchase order was approved. The third phase started on Aug. 8, which covered K-rail rentals up to Oct. 18. That was later extended until January.Gov. Gavin Newsom allowed restaurants to resume outdoor dining last week after shutting everything down in December.The matter could go before the City Council next week.
