All e-mail communications with the LRC team will also be back in operation after the 22nd July 2003.

John Nicholls, Chief Executive at the LRC said:
“The LRC’s relocation to Halford House, Charles Street in Leicester is a deliberate move by the company to get closer to the heart of regeneration. Now the final report of the masterplan has been launched and we are moving into detailed development plans, the time has come for a base of our own where we can provide high quality presentations to our potential development partners.

The initial office base provided by KPMG was invaluable to the LRC; however the LRC had expanded to a point whereby we needed a place of our own. I would like to thank all of our partners; Leicester City Council, East Midlands Development Agency and the national regeneration body, English Partnerships for their support in making this move possible together with West London Properties, which has pulled out all of the stops to ensure our move ran smoothly.”

The Leicester Regeneration Company (LRC) was set up in 2001, and is a not for profit partnership between the public sector, private sector and the wider community. The company’s aim is to improve the physical image and environment of the city and further its economic prosperity. In 2002, the LRC launched a Masterplan, which is a framework for redevelopment in the city centre around the ring road and along the Grand Union Canal/River Soar for the next ten to fifteen years.
