Commenting on their appointment Mark Lane, Director and Residential sector lead at DPP said:

Securing a place on the Innovation Chain North (ICN) framework is testament to our expertise in delivering residential consents across England and Wales. As the housing crisis continues and a potential change in Government builds even more interest in meeting the urgent housing needs of the nation, this appointment means that DPP is ideally placed to continue to drive forward housing delivery across the North of England.

Joanne Whitehead, Great Places’ Development Performance Manager, responsible for managing the framework, added :

We are delighted to be working with DPP on our new ICN framework. We are confident they will be able to work with us and the clients of ICN in delivering the sector’s extensive development ambitions in the North.
