According to your Mayor's Construction academy hubs map there are no hubs in Croydon, Sutton, Merton, Wandsworth, Richmond upon Thames and Kingston upon Thames. Why is this the case and what efforts have been made to set up hubs in these boroughs?
In the first round of Mayor’s Construction Academy funding back in 2018, we did not receive an application covering Croydon, Sutton, Merton, Wandsworth, Richmond upon Thames or Kingston upon Thames which sufficiently met the stated requirements in the prospectus. A proposal for a hub covering these boroughs led by the South London Partnership was received in the second round of funding. We will shortly be announcing successful applicants to this round and anticipate that delivery will commence in March.
