None of the 10 sites being developed as part of the Design for Manufacture competition is in my hon. Friend's West Ham constituency. However, we have asked English Partnership to develop a toolkit for local authorities. This will mean that a local authority could run a similar competition to develop £60,000 homes on land in their ownership in their areas should they wish to do so. This toolkit should be available later this year.
