This is what we are told by Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust on
January 6th 2014

"Mansell Construction are the developer that will be delivering the new homes on behalf of BMHT.  We have yet to sign the Development Contract but this is imminent so I expect a start on site this month a little later than expected.
As part of negotiations Mansell have signed up to provide funding that supports the
BUILDING BIRMINGHAM Scholarship, a bursary scheme that we have established where BMHT provide the necessary funding to support a limited number of young people who wish to pursue a career in the construction and built environment sectors.
In all the Council's contracts there is a requirement that the developer works
with the Council's Employment Access Team  whose  key objective is to
work with developers and employers to ensure a commitment to connect local
people with employment and apprenticeship opportunities."
