Some particular valuation problems are raised by the development of buildings which are protected for reasons of historical or architectural merit. The experience of Plymouth Development Corporation in seeking to secure the regeneration of the Royal William Yard is a case in point. The Corporation was established in 1993 for a period of five years and one of its principal tasks was to find new uses for the former Royal Naval Victualling Yard which contains ten buildings scheduled as ancient monuments. The Corporation prepared a development strategy for the Yard and adjacent areas incorporating improved access and parking and a mixed‐use brief for other buildings. A compulsory purchase order was issued and, following a lengthy public inquiry, it was confirmed. MEPC was subsequently selected as lead developer with the anchor use being a factory outlet centre. Even with MEPC’s involvement there was a need for a significant level of gap funding. At the end of the Corporation’s life, in March 1998, the deal with MEPC has still to be completed and responsibility passed to English Partnerships.

For the vast majority of cisgendered people who experience alignment between the sex they were assigned at birth, the body they have and their gender identity they are comfortable with (Schilt and Westbrook, 2009), the experience of trans people is a distant one. More of us share an experience of aging and the associated concerns about reduced independence, deterioration of health and increased need for care and support. The paper aims to discuss these issues.
For trans elders, the experience of aging has specific features that have a major impact on their lives if not understood, planned for and responded to appropriately. This paper presents findings from a qualitative study exploring trans peoples experiences, concerns and suggestions for how agencies providing elder care can better meet their expectations (Jones, 2013).
The research revealed low confidence in the ability of current aged care services to meet the needs of trans elders due to a limited understanding of the relationship between health and social care specific to trans people; undervaluing the networks in trans people’s lives; the need to demonstrate culturally competent services and real concerns regarding tackling discrimination and abuse. Despite legislative advancements, there was a sense that activism is central to tackling these issues and trans people are articulating their demands for shaping future provision. The research identifies a number of recommendations for care providers and future areas of research.
In response to identifying an absence of trans voices being heard on the subject of trans elder care, this study sought to understand expectations of services, amplify the voices of the participants and share the priorities they articulated to influence future service design and practice.

In a recent issue of the Municipal Journal there appeared a short but apparently inspired article on the subject of London Government, in which is foreshadowed another drastic and apparently imminent alteration of the system of local administration at present in operation in the Metropolis.
