In the summer of 2014, 3Fox International undertook a research project commissioned by housing developer Wates Living Space. The objective of this research was collating and presenting certain metrics that can indicate if a local authority would make a potential client for a residential developer like Wates Living Space.


For the report, 3Fox International compiled information like planning performance statistics, housing targets, grant funding and an overview of published OJEU notices in the past few years. From this data it was possible to identify a handfull of local authorities that have an active trackrecord regarding housebuilding, and therefore might make potential clients in the future.

"Working with 3Fox has been a pleasure," said Wates Living Space regional managing director Andy Fancy. "They produced a useful and well-written consultancy report that met all our expectations."
