Leo Woodhead, the DPP3 Strategic Lead for Robert Woodhead Ltd, said: “We have been delivering housing led development schemes for many years for both public sector clients and for private market sale. DPP3 gives us the opportunity, as partners, to improve housing delivery within the areas we currently operate by focusing on social value, creating innovative design and delivery solutions whilst striving to answer the local housing need.”

Robert Woodhead Limited is currently working on a range of public sector housing schemes across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire. DPP3 is open for use by local authorities, registered providers and other public sector bodies including; central government departments, NHS Trusts and educational establishments. DPP3 allows these public sectors bodies to streamline their procurement process by providing access to a pre-qualified list of housing developers and contractors, such as Robert Woodhead Limited.

Leo added: “The panel will help strengthen our position as a housing developer and as a building contractor across the East Midlands and South Yorkshire.  As a family owned and operated business, this is the next step of our continued growth strategy and will have a significant impact locally as we will continue to use our growing local supply chain, to help us deliver projects procured through DPP3.”
