The author presents here a critical account of the whole range of partnerships in property development. The book moves beyond a theoretical overview and illuminates the reality of these schemes, showing, for example, exactly how the government is procuring schools, hospitals and roads. The author draws on his direct experience of running property partnerships and, using carefully researched case studies, presents the ′insider′ view.

Both public and private developments are addressed and considered from the funder, the developer and the tenant viewpoints. An analysis of how partnership schemes work is given, examining legal and economic issues, as well as assessing their impact on the urban infrastructure.
