Sunderland City Council
As part of Sunderland Council’s City Plan, major milestones have already been achieved including the opening of our new landmark, Northern Spire bridge, and the development of the first phase of the International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP). The City Plan will take us up to 2030 and sets the framework for the City’s ongoing regeneration and help ensure we serve our communities to the highest standards possible.
We recently appointed two senior roles in leading and managing the implementation of the Council’s strategic residential and commercial property development programmes and delivering the City’s priority development and investment projects.
Strategic developments will see the delivery of approximately 1 million square feet of modern commercial office space, 5,500 high-quality new homes, significant leisure development, and city-wide infrastructure enhancement.
Projects include Riverside Sunderland which will help to double the City Centre population from 2,500 to 5,000 and increase the number of people employed in the City Centre by 50% from 12,000 to 18,000, stimulating investment, creating a new way of City Centre living, and maximising the wider economic and regeneration benefits for the City.

To manage all of the resources associated with the delivery of residential or commercial projects, within a performance management framework.
