Thomas Lister Appointed as Appraisers for the £150 Million Black Country Land and Property Investment Fund
Thomas Lister Limited are delighted to announce that they have been appointed by the City of Wolverhampton Council and The Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership as Property Appraisers for a new investment for a new £150 Million investment fund to support both commercial and residential development schemes as well as site remediation projects to address the barriers to development across the sub region.
The fund was launched in November 2017 at the Hawthorns in West Bromwich and has already attracted significant interest from developers and land owners and it is anticipated that a first round of grant approvals will be secured by March 2018.
The appointment is for a term of four years and sits alongside the recent appointment of Thomas Lister to continue their role as Appraisers to the Black Country Local Growth Fund by Walsall Council (as accountable body) and the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership.
Chris Thomas of Thomas Lister commented “Thomas Lister are delighted with the appointment which builds upon our existing relationships within the Black Country – and will hopefully enable us to work with the LEP and the Local Authority Partnerships to secure the new investment required to bring forward major brownfield opportunities across the Black Country”.
