The local authority in this case recently sought funding approval from my Department for this social housing turnkey project, following successful negotiations with the developer, and that funding approval has been given.  As is standard with turnkey projects, the majority of the payment, apart from an initial deposit, is on completion of the housing units in a 'turnkey' condition.  I understand that the local authority would have an interest in the 'staged delivery' of this project if possible, which would both allow early delivery of some of the housing units and also early payment to the developer on completion of such units.
