There’s no denying that 2020 has been a challenging year
and the harsh reality is that next year is likely to be just as hard
work. Rent and mortgage holidays will come to an end, grant
funding and furlough will have gone and the impact will only
fully hit once all of this support comes to a close.
It’s no secret that our cities are being
pushed to their limits with the second

clients – and thanks to their tenacity,
we’ve continued to thrive and grow.
We continue to increase our strong
presence in the region’s cities and on its
busiest high streets, oering our highquality service from our branch network
while continuing to be a passionate
advocate for city centre working.
It’s positive to see that Local
Authorities and partner organisations
continue their dedication to developing
better places to live, work and socialise.
Sunderland City Council’s ambitious
Riverside Sunderland project is the focus
of our tenth edition of Portfolio Magazine

that we are still moving forward despite
the challenging circumstances of 2020.
We never liked the concept of ‘new
normal’– there was something about it
that said things would never be as good as
