Global FX trade surges to $4 trillion per day

first_img Share whatsapp TRADE on global currency markets has jumped by a fifth over the past three years to $4 trillion a day, roughly equal to the annual economic output of Germany, according to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). The increase in volumes was driven by a 48 per cent jump in turnover of conventional spot transactions, BIS said in the triennial survey, which is watched closely by banks and institutions as a comprehensive snapshot of currency market trading.Growth in the spot market partly reflects the continued rise of algorithmic trading, where so-called black boxes can process thousands of trades a minute.The survey also showed London has further cemented its prominence as the centre for forex markets, accounting for 36.7 per cent of global turnover, up from 34.6 per cent in 2007. In 2007-2010 London’s share of average daily turnover rose roughly by a quarter to $1.9 trillion. That was more than double the turnover in the US, the second-largest centre.The over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market also saw strong growth, with daily turnover 24 per cent to $2.1 trillion.

They will start to take effect in January 2013 but changes to the definition of top-quality capital and the requirement for a capital-conservation buffer will not be fully implemented until 2018.Wellink, who is also head of the Dutch central bank, said regulators were continuing to discuss how to deal with large banks seen as “too big to fail”. But he added that measures being considered by the Basel Committee and Financial Stability Board included “combinations of a capital surcharge, bail-in debt and contingent capital”.Wellink rebuffed criticism that the new rules would hit economic growth, saying that they made the whole banking system more resilient to a financial downturn. “If, prior to the crisis, banks had the levels of capital we are asking for, we likely would not have experienced such a deep crisis,” he said. whatsapp whatsappcenter_img KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Speed needed for banks to meet Basel III Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Candy brother buys One Hyde Park flat

first_img whatsapp KCS-content THE DEVELOPERS of One Hyde Park have tried to lead by example by snapping up two of the luxury flats in the complex in Knightsbridge, it emerged yesterday.Christian Candy, one half of property firm Candy & Candy, has bought a single-storey penthouse for £31m, according to press reports based on Land Registry documents yesterday. This would be over £100m less than the asking price for the most expensive apartments in the complex.Sheik Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jaber al-Thani, the Qatari Prime Minister who helped fund the development through his Guernsey-based Project Grande company, bought a three-storey penthouse flat in August.But there has also been intense speculation as to the identity of the purchaser of the most expensive unit, a £140m penthouse apartment. The Capitalist in City A.M. was the first to highlight the mystery of the £140m penthouse owner last week and queried whether the developers may have purchased other apartments. Candy & Candy has not disclosed the identity of the buyer. The company maintained its refusal to name the buyer yesterday, citing a confidentiality agreement. Candy & Candy said last week that the penthouse was bought by an anonymous party who came through the One Hyde Park website.While the developers have announced that contracts have been exchanged on 60 per cent of the 86 flats available, it is thought that just two finalised sales have made it onto the Land Registry to date – both of them bought by the developers. A director at Savills, one of the agents tasked with marketing the flats, told The Capitalist last week the new owner of the most expensive penthouse is not one of the developers. Simon Cowell, Arcadia boss Philip Green and Formula One tycoon Bernie Ecclestone were among 350 guests invited to the sumptous launch party of the Knightsbridge development last week. The retail outlets on the ground floor of the complex have been let to carmaker McLaren, Rolex and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank. The One Hyde Park scheme was started in 2006 and cost close to £1bn to develop. A spokesperson for Candy & Candy said the identity and amount paid for each flat was private as part of a confidentiality agreement and declined to comment on the Land Registry public records.

I was wrong about the Royal Mail share price. Here’s what I’d do now

first_img FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Edward Sheldon, CFA | Monday, 18th January, 2021 | More on: RMG Enter Your Email Address Like this one… See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA Royal Mail (LSE: RMG) is a stock I’ve been bearish on for a while. For example, in July last year, I said I’d “steer well clear” due to the fact hedge funds were betting the share price would fall. More recently, in early December, I said that if I owned Royal Mail shares, I’d be looking to sell.Yet, over the last six months, Royal Mail shares have actually performed very well. Back in mid-July, the FTSE 250 stock was trading near 180p. Today, however, the share price is at 385p. That represents a rise of more than 110%. Clearly, my short-term calls on the Royal Mail share price have been wrong.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Here, I’m going to look at why the RMG share price has surged recently. I’ll also explain how I’d play the stock now.Royal Mail’s share price has surgedSince I last covered the stock in early December, when I looked at what had caused Royal Mail’s share price to rise 36% in November, there have been a number of positive developments here.Firstly, Royal Mail has reached an agreement with its largest labour union. This is in relation to the company’s strategy, future direction, operational change, and pay. The agreement settles a long dispute between the parties and paves the way for the company to focus more on parcel deliveries going forward.Secondly, the company has appointed a new CEO for its UK business. On 11 January, Royal Mail announced Simon Thompson will head this business. Previously, Thompson headed digital commerce at HSBC. He’s also held senior positions at WM Morrison Supermarkets, Ocado, and Motorola. Third, analyst sentiment towards the stock has dramatically improved recently. For example, just recently, JP Morgan named RMG as one of its ‘top picks’ within the European logistics sector. It noted trading has benefitted from stronger parcel volume, improving the medium-term revenue outlook. Meanwhile, Berenberg recently upgraded the shares to ‘hold’ from ‘sell’ while more than doubling its price target. It’s also worth pointing out that hedge funds are no longer targeting the stock.Finally, sentiment towards cheap UK shares have improved this year now that there’s more clarity on Brexit. This will also have helped the Royal Mail share price.My view on RMG shares nowPutting this all together, it seems the outlook for Royal Mail is certainly better than it was six months ago. The company has held up better than expected due to its parcel growth. And with a new CEO at the helm and a union agreement in place, there’s less uncertainty in relation to the investment case.Having said that, this still isn’t a stock I’d buy today. There are a few reasons why.One is that the company doesn’t have a good track record. I prefer to invest in reliable companies that are resilient and dependable.Another is that Royal Mail still has a long way to go to fully turn things around. It needs to invest heavily in technology and become much more of a digital operator, while also reducing its costs.Finally, the valuation doesn’t have much appeal. At the current share price, the forward-looking P/E ratio for next year is 14. I see the stock as fully-valued.All things considered, I think there are better stocks to buy.

Massive political concert denounces Turkish regime

first_imgGroup Yorum Concert, Istanbul, April 13. ‘An Independent Turkey: Bread, Justice, Freedom.’Photo: Halkin Sesi TVOne of the largest concentrations of Turkish people opposing the Turkish regime, nearly 750,000 people, gathered on April 13 at the marketplace Bakirköy in Istanbul. Organized by the Marxist musical ensemble, Grup Yorum, this politico-cultural festival centered on denouncing police repression and the pro-terrorist, anti-Syrian foreign policy of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.Grup Yorum is an activist musical collective that suffered vicious repression by the Erdogan regime, its police and its media. Last year, Grup Yorum gave a concert in Tartous, a Syrian seaport town, to mark its anti-imperialist solidarity with the Syrian people.The families of eight young people killed during the protests last year against the Erdogan regime were invited on stage.A collective of artists sang “Van cold” (“Van üsüyor”) in solidarity with the victims of the earthquake of 2011 who are still forced to live in substandard prefabricated barracks, suffering from the indifference of the Turkish authorities.A delegation of Kazova workers, who had resisted by occupying a textile factory, was among the guests of honor of Grup Yorum.Several political and artistic opposition figures read a poem, sang a song or made a speech during the event.The Turkish attorney Selçuk Kozaagaçli spoke. He is famous in Syria for having investigated terrorist crimes committed by the Ankara regime.Kozagaçli Me, who had just been released with eight of his colleagues after 14 months of arbitrary detention, was there.From a report forwarded to WW by political journalist Kimyongur Bahar.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

OSHA Plans to Clarify Policies Related to Small Farms

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter OSHA Plans to Clarify Policies Related to Small Farms By Gary Truitt – Jan 24, 2014 The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has pledged to clarify its policies relating to regulating activities on small farms. Before Christmas – Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns led a group of Senators in writing a letter to direct OSHA to issue updated guidance correcting their misinterpretation of current law. Johanns said the agency had ignored 35-year old provisions in fining a small farm in his state for improper grain storage. Language included in appropriations bills since 1976 exempts farming operations with 10 or fewer employees from regulations enforced with OSHA funds. The agency’s recent interest in on-farm grain storage facilities – according to OSHA Deputy Assistant Secretary Jordan Barab – is motivated by safety. OSHA released a memorandum to clarify its position on the facilities in 2011 – after several storage accidents in 2010 that led to 57 bin engulfments and 31 deaths. Barab says OSHA also started a very aggressive campaign to prevent similar incidents. As a result of that campaign – which included increased enforcement – Barab says there were only 19 engulfments and eight deaths in 2012. The omnibus appropriations bill recently approved by Congress has pushed OSHA to revisit the issue. A provision encourages the agency to work with USDA before moving forward with any attempts to redefine and regulate post-harvest activities. According to Barab – OSHA intends to meet with USDA and revise the 2011 memorandum very quickly.Johanns is pleased OSHA has indicated a willingness to revisit its policy of regulatory overreach on small farms. According to Johanns – stepping back in line with the law means honoring Congressional intent to protect family farms – including post-harvest activities. He says it isn’t a matter of changing the law – but restating the same law that’s been on the books for decades and honoring the limitations set by Congress. Johanns is hopeful the agency is prepared to follow through – but says actions speak louder than words – so only time will tell if OSHA is committed to following the law.

Home repossesion case adjourned because of borrower’s Christmas concerns

first_img Pinterest 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North A Donegal father of five has had the adjournment of a home repossession case at the High Court extended from December to the New Year, after telling the judge he was worried about Christmas.The case, involving the Educational Building Society, concerned two loans taken out in June 2006 by the borrower, from Letterkenny.He claimed the EBS had given him incorrect advice, and told the court he would not have taken out the commercial loans if he had not been given the advice.He also suggested the building society should be treated as a failed investor and should carry its own losses, and questioned whether EBS still owns the loan.The man told Ms Justice Elizabeth Dunne he had sought documents from the EBS related to his loans, and  they had not been provided.He said believed his loan had been traded and “securitised” by the building society and it might no longer own it. He added he wanted a full hearing to carry out a “securitisation audit” on the loan.Counsel for the EBS refuted the suggestion the bank might not be the holder of the loan and said the case had gone on for two years already and should be completed.Ms Justice Dunne noted the borrower had not questioned the building society’s ownership of the loan on affidavit. She said she had already given time to the borrower to file other affidavits, but agreed to give him one more opportunity.She adjourned the case to December 19th, but when the borrower asked if she would hold off until the New Year, she agreed to do so.

Weather: Please stop raining. We’re begging.

first_imgITHACA, N.Y. — If you’re done with the rain (and just about everyone is), well…keep your hopes up for the end of the week. In the meanwhile, we don’t have much of a choice but to grin and bear, as a slow-moving storm system will keep things cool and wet for at least the next couple of days.Graphic courtesy of the Northeast Regional Climate Center.Weather RecapWith May 2019 in the books, it looks like it’ll go down in the climate record as a cool, wet month. Temperature wise, the month was modestly cooler than normal, at 54.8 °F, -0.6 °F below the average according to the Northeast Regional Climate Center. In terms or seasonal ranking, it comes in as the 45th coldest out of the 127 Mays in Ithaca’s historic record. For most practical purposes, this would be considered near normal (roughly gauged at plus or minus 1 °F from the normal).Perhaps more notable is the rain. Not so much the amount, but the presence. By any account, May was a wet month, with 4.85 inches of rain, well above the average of 3.19″ and 18th wettest in the historic climate data. What might be more notable, or annoying if you will, is that there was no particularly rainy day, it just happened to rain almost every day. The maximum single day of rain was 0.84″ on the 14th, but 24 of the 31 days in May had at least a trace of rain fall during the month. Nearly 80% of the month, so you can’t blame this on the Ithaca Festival. If you’ve about had it with the rain, we won’t fault you.Much of this can be attributed (or blamed, if you prefer) on the dome of intense heat that set itself up over Georgia and North Florida. Those triple-digit temperatures created a bubble of hot air, and since air expands as it warms, it creates a dome that pushes the jet stream poleward. In our case, that meant that the jet stream was overhead, and with it, the prevailing storm track, which tend to follow along the jet stream. Add in another persistent ridge of heat from unseasonably warm waters in the Pacific Ocean, and it creates a stalled out jet and weather pattern.Between the two ridges was a jet stream trough that created unseasonable cold and storminess over the Western and Central United States, including snow in Denver and rain in California (which typically shuts off in early spring). Plus, thanks to the clash of two very different air masses over the Central United States, and the dynamics and energy were there for multiple tornado outbreaks. At least eight confirmed tornadic storms occurred every day over a 12-day period – the longest such stretch in forty years of observations.In sum, it’s not just the rain here. It’s the tornadoes in Kansas City, the 105 °F in Jacksonville with the oppressive humidity, the snow in Denver, and the flooding in Tulsa. Everyone is worn out. Which is why a potential pattern change later this week is so heartily welcomed.High temps Monday will be about 10 degrees below average with a small chance of showers southeast of Lake Ontario. #NYwx #PAwx pic.twitter.com/MS3p0Uih3A— NWS Binghamton (@NWSBinghamton) June 2, 2019 Your Weekly Weather Your weather news is made possible with support from: Starting off this week will be a rather strong area of low pressure spinning over Quebec, and slowly trudging northeastward. With its strong counterclockwise flow, temperatures will be well below normal for Monday, and in fact, because it’s a strong, deep system, it will channel colder air down at its core and possibly bring snow to areas near Ottawa. But it won’t be that cold here, thankfully.Tonight, with the front having moved through the region, things should steadily cool off as the clouds break up and radiational cooling gets underway. Temperatures will drop into the low 40s under mostly clear skies. Monday will be blustery and cold for June, as Tompkins County remains under the influence of the low to the northeast. It’ll be dry in most areas and partly cloudy, but winds may gust up to 30 MPH as a blustery northwest wind remains in place until the evening hours. Temperatures will only top out in the upper 50s in most communities, 10-15 degrees below normal for this time of the year. The winds will calm down for Monday night, which happens to be optimal for more radiational cooling (agitated air is harder to cool off). Temperatures will drop to around 40 °F under mostly clear skies, with some 30s likely on the hilltops and in outlying areas.On Tuesday, high pressure briefly build in from the south during the morning hours, but a warm front will sweep through west to east during the late afternoon, and yes, there’s a good chance of rain during the late afternoon and evening hours. Highs will get up into the mid 60s as mostly sunny skies give way to mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers during the PM hours. Some showers will linger Tuesday night as partly cloudy skies prevail across the region, and with the front past, southeast winds will keep temperatures in the mid 50s for lows.Wednesday will be a bit unsettled as the southerly wind brings moisture and some instability to the atmosphere, so a late day pop-up shower or thunderstorm in likely. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 70s. A weak cold front will swing through during the overnight hours, but this doesn’t change the temperature so much as it dries out the atmosphere. Some showers are likely before midnight, with mostly skies otherwise and lows around 60 °F.Thursday is…well, we can’t say dry because there may be some lingering showers early. But certainly by afternoon, as high pressure pushed in from the Midwest, it will be decreasing clouds and pleasant with highs in the mid 70s. Thursday night will be partly cloudy with a low in the mid 50s.It’s looking downright lovely from Friday through the weekend. If you have outdoor plans you’ve been putting off, now is the time to take advantage. With high pressure in place and persistently in place thanks to a blocking pattern with the jet stream over the Atlantic Ocean, Friday, Saturday and Sunday are all looking to be mostly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 70s, and overnight lows in the mid 50s under partly cloudy skies. It doesn’t get much better than that, folks.Graphic courtesy of the Climate Prediction Center.Extended OutlookLooking into mid-June, forecast models are suggesting a persistent trough over the Mountain West and Central United States, with potential incursions into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. A ridge will lap at the west coast and warm air trapped under the trough in the west will be confined to the southern United States, resulting in warmer-than-normal conditions there. But generally, expect near normal temperatures, while precipitation is looking to be near or slightly below normal for the period. center_img Tagged: spring weather, weather, weekly weather Brian Crandall reports on housing and development for the Ithaca Voice.

Easter Parade cited for Brundidge

The Easter Bonnet Eggstravaganza is just a celebration of spring and a way to bring our community together in a fun and fancy – or not so fancy – way.”First National Bank invites women, children and men, too, to think bonnets – simple, elegant, funny, homemade, store bought or second hand – and then think Easter Bonnet Eggstravaganza.

We all have a good time around the holidays.”Dansby said that last year at Easter the bank employees were talking about Easter traditions and Johnnie Ramage suggested that it would be fun to designate one day for all the employees to wear Easter bonnets.“But we really didn’t have time to get anything planned so this year we decided to start in plenty of time to involve, not only the bank employees, but other businesses in town and the community, too,” Dansby said. “And, the Troy branch will be involved so this could be a communitywide event.”The 2011 Easter Bonnet Eggstravaganza is planned for Friday, April 22 and ladies, and men, too, if they want to wear Sunday hats, are invited to create a bonnet, fish an old one out of the closet or buy a brand new one and join the Easter Bonnet Parade.“We think this will be a real fun event for everyone and, hopefully, it will become an annual event,” Dansby said.“We’re going to have some light refreshments at the bank on April 22 and might even give a prize or two.

OJK launches banking regulation database mobile app

first_img“We have recognized that there need to be tools to help make it easier for stakeholders to find regulations, understand them and, most importantly, comply with them,” Heru added, noting that the OJK had found that more violations were the result of a lack of understanding of regulations than of compliance avoidance. The banking industry is a highly regulated industry as it plays a crucial role in maintaining the safety and stability of the financial sector.According to data from the SIKePO app, there are 252 regulations on conventional banks and 380 on sharia banks, including regulations for regional banks and sharia business units.The OJK has developed the digital database over the past six years. From 2014 to 2015, the agency started to codify Indonesia’s banking regulations, arranging the regulations into a systematic database and classifying them into particular topics. The Financial Services Authority (OJK) officially launched a mobile app version of its banking regulation digital library on Tuesday in an effort to increase the public accessibility of the extensive database.The platform, called the Online Banking Regulation Information System (SIKePO), aims to provide a complete, up-to-date and easy-to-use database as many stakeholders have found banking regulations confusing and ever-changing, OJK commissioner for banking supervision Heru Kristiyana said on Tuesday. “The banking ecosystem, ranging from its products and services to infrastructure, has been developing rapidly, accompanied by risks that are growing in complexity. Regulations have also changed quickly along with the development of the businesses,” Heru said during the virtual launch of SIKePO. In 2016, the OJK began the development of the SIKePO platform, and in the following year, the system went online as a public website.The mobile application has been available for use since 2019 but was officially launched on Tuesday. It is now available for download through the App Store and Google Play under the name SIKePO OJK and has seen more than 1,000 downloads on the latter platform.Through the platform, users gain access to codified banking regulations based on seven classifications: institutional, business activity, principle of prudence, accounting reports and standards, banking supervision, consumer protection and miscellaneous. The app also features regulations’ records to detail whether a recent regulation overrides previous ones or changes parts of them. In addition, the app contains executive summaries of regulations and infographics. OJK executive director of banking research and regulation Anung Herlianto reported at the launch event that as of Sept. 7, or about nine months since the soft launch of the mobile application, the platform had been accessed almost 1.5 million times with a daily average of 4,000 views.“A spike in daily access generally occurs when the OJK releases new regulations,” Anung said, adding that he believed access would increase after the launch event. The application saw more than 6,500 visitors on Tuesday afternoon after the event.OJK Regulations (POJK) were the most accessed type of regulation, making up 70 percent of total views between Sept. 1 and Sept. 8. OJK circular letters (SEOJK) were accessed more than 1,000 times during the same period.Topics :last_img read more

Push for leg-up on established homes

first_imgREIQ regional director Damien Keyes. Picture: Evan Morgan A TOWNSVILLE real estate leader is calling on the State Government to extend the First Home  Owners’ Grant to established homes to help stimulate the region’s struggling property­ market.REIQ regional director and Keyes & Co Property owner Damien Keyes said the current­ grant arrangements were contributing to an oversupply of new homes and disadvantaging people who couldn’t afford to build.“There is a whole other market of established homes that is being ignored,” Mr Keyes said.“In Townsville you can buy homes for under $200,000 and if you can get these young people on a home ownership path sooner then the whole economy benefits. If you’ve bought a house then you’re going down to Bunnings to buy things to renovate it, you’re buying furniture and you’re in the market for when that upswing happens.”More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020The First Home Owners Grant is a once-off payment of $20,000 made to people buying a new home for the first time in Australia. It only applies to new dwellings, or in some cases homes that have been extensively renovated­.Mr Keyes said extending the grant could also help people who might be able to spend only $200,000 on their first home, while also helping the property market to recover.“A lot of the first home buyers in the new market are having to spend $340,000 or $350,000 so a lot of that time that grant just ends up funding granite benchtops or flat-screen TVs when that grant is supposed to be there to help people that have some challenges­,” he said.“There would be this whole other world of people out there that would love to be able to be able to have a house for $200,000. If you fire that up it will push house prices along and it would be a good thing for everyone.”Townsville MP Scott Stewart ruled out pushing for the grant to be extended saying one of the aims of the grant was to help the construction industry and create jobs.“The focus was to get people into their homes but also to stimulate building and construction­ industry because it was really flat following the downturn in the commodities market and the GFC,” he said.“While I can sympathise with the call for established home, this is about stimulating activit­y in the building industry.”last_img read more

Green retreat about to blossom

Buderim Forest will be carried out in six stages, with civil construction due to start on stage one in July this yearMASSIVELY convenient and superbly secluded were the words Vantage Homes sales consultant Ian Rowe used to describe the new $43 million residential development at Forest Glen.Mr Rowe said within 72 hours of their mid-May launch they had sold three properties and was excited to see where it would go from there.“Look it’s in the price sweet spot and once people see where it is, it’s an absolute winner,” he said.He said while there was a substantial amount of development happening on the Sunshine Coast, this was “genuinely different”. The site will be surrounded by a 50m barrier of forest.“You can’t see the development from the road … and there’s going to be a 100m driveway, the winds its way through that forest into the development.“It’s a wonderful environment, and I mean every single person that has walked into that clearing where the development is going to be, has all gone ‘wow’, with the aspect, the nature, the birds, it really is stunning.”He said nature was not the only draw card to investing into this development, with Forest Glen being tagged as an emerging community.“You are a minute away from one of the top schools in Queensland, a-minute away from one of the best cafes on the coast, but also you’re a five-minute drive to Buderim, you’re 12 minutes to Mooloolaba, you’re 14 minutes to the hospital and you’re about a minute, depending whether you’re going south or north, to the Bruce Highway.“Forest Glen is classed as an emerging community with the Sunshine Coast Council, so things are going to happen there.“There’s a lot of talk about the potential town centre, we’re excited with the future growth in Forest Glen.”The development will be carried out in six stages, with civil construction due to start on stage one in July this year, and Mr Rowe said, depending on sales, they hoped to have it completed within three years.last_img read more
