Supporting this announcement, Nick said: “I am really pleased to be back in Yorkshire, where I grew up, and am looking forward to working more closely with both the Leeds and Newcastle teams. We have some great projects already underway, and many more in the pipeline, which will have a positive impact on the region, including a number of major housing schemes and large industrial developments, in addition to a major multimodal freight facility.”
