According to the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), its Single Conversation business model, which has been developed to co-ordinate discussion and make better use of local funding streams, is now underway with 67 per cent of all Local Authorities around the country.

David Liston-Jones, Chief Executive of the Thames Gateway Kent Partnership also welcomed the Single Conversation. He said: "In North Kent we were very much in favour of the HCA's 'Single Conversation' proposal and were pleased to be selected as one of the 3 pilot Single Conversations in the South East.

"We see this as building on the strong partnership working developed through the recently signed Multi Area Agreement, and vital to ensuring that the right investment choices are made to achieve sustainable economic growth and regeneration in North Kent."
