Want to know what's going to be in tomorrow's Estates Gazette today? Well then just read on...
I speak exclusively to David Bishop, Nottingham city council's new corporate director for development. In his first big interview since taking over the role in May, Bishop talks exclusively about derisking development in the East Midlands capital for investors and developers alike.
This ties in rather nicely with David Thame's report on the three new enterprise zones for the East Midlands - chosen because of the promised quick wins in the shape of new jobs. But how rapidly can the sites in Hinckley, Northampton and Nottingham rise to the challenge?
Nottingham has once again been the centre of office activity in the region this year with three chunky deals, but Grade A availability may soon be running low - Kurt Jacob takes a look at the situation.
As we all know the retail sector has been hit hard for quite some time now, but the East Midlands has also been revealed as the worst-performing region in the UK, with a 5.8% decrease in retail rents for the year ending in June. It also has a vacancy rate of almost 13% David Quinn asks why aren't local agents worried?
In the leisure sector, Silverstone has been hitting the headlines lately for a major investment opportunity at its Northamptonshire site. Around 4m sq ft of properties is proposed, but will the victor be able to work with the big egos and strong views found within the British Racing Drivers Club? Joanna Bourke finds out.
We also take a closer look at the EG East Midlands Regional Award Winners - FHP and Miller Birch. Find out why they were voted best in the region?
Last but not least, we provide an up to the minute statistical overview on all sectors of the property market for the region.
The East Midlands Focus will also be available as a free digital edition next week: www.estatesgazette.com/focus subscribers can see the entire edition of the mag digitally today.
