Set up in 2001, the partnership was one of the first of its kind in local government. The partnership was created to provide a range of services within the property, development and regeneration sector and supporting the Council’s ‘2020 vision’ to transform the borough into an attractive place that local people and businesses want to be.
Over past 15 years, the partnership has transformed the way the Council operates and engages with the local community, creating employment opportunities, improving council services and delivering a borough-wide regeneration programme.
Recognising the new focus on place, our strategic partnership with Capita is getting us ready to compete nationally, showcase place-based innovation and bring growth and prosperity to directly benefit our residents and the wider regionHarry Catherall, Chief Executive of Blackburn with Darwen Council

Alongside greater automation and financial transparency across the Council, Capita has also re-shaped the finance function to give us greater resilience and support through the accountancy functions provided - something that will prove invaluable as times of austerity continue.John Hooton, Chief Executive, London Borough of Barnet
