Woodford is distressed through fund redemptions, though obviously that may not be the reason this time. I wouldn't give his dealings any credence at all!

Good news - WJG's 345 bed student scheme in Bristol has been recommended for approval: Https://www.insidermedia.com/insider/southwest/345-bed-student-development-poised-for-approval "345-bed student development poised for approval 5 Sep 2018 A 345-bed student development on the site of a dance studio and car park in Bristol has been recommended for approval. The project, which comes from listed property developer Watkin Jones, also includes the refurbishment of a grade II-listed Georgian townhouse. If approved, the development would be up to six storeys high with solar panels on roofs, and two commercial units on the development's ground floor. The report to be considered by the committee reads: "The proposals would consist of three development blocks, fronting Wilder Street, Upper York Street and Backfields, with a central courtyard for use by the student occupiers. "The blocks would range from between six and three storeys in height, with the lowest parts of the new buildings either side of the listed building and within the Conservation Area. etc"

...and news of another large development proposal: Https://www.thebusinessdesk.com/eastmidlands/news/2017626-plans-revealed-775-city-centre-flats "Plans revealed for 775 city centre flats Plans to build up to 775 apartments in the Waterside area of Leicester have been revealed by developer Watkin Jones. The firm wants to develop a site between All Saints Road and Jarvis Street. Some 500 apartments will be for students, says Watkin Jones. The site has been home to warehouses in the past, but is now vacant. Watkin Jones says the number of apartments is “indicative” at the moment, and has lodged a Screening Opinion request with Leicester City Council to try and work out whether the scheme would have any impact on the environment because of it scale and size. It would be between five and 12 storeys high. Leicester City Council’s planning department will now consult to see if the scheme will have any impact on the city’s environment."

Looks like next week WJG will get approval for a new student and PRS apartment development for hundreds of units in Sheffield: Https://www.insidermedia.com/insider/yorkshire/student-and-prs-flats-plan-set-for-approval "Student and PRS flats plan set for approval 29 Aug 2018 Plans for the development of hundreds of student and private rented sector (PRS) apartments on a site in Sheffield city centre are set to get the green light from councillors next week (4 September). The Watkin Jones Group, supported by DLP Planning and Kelsey Design Associates, submitted a full-planning application to Sheffield City Council earlier this year for a development on the site of Silversteel House on Rockingham Street and associated land bound by Rockingham Street, Boden Lane and Bailey Lane. The scheme, known as Grunwergs 2, would comprise hundreds of new residential units with a mix of clusters, studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. The cluster apartments would be purpose-built student accommodation with a total of 618 bedrooms as well as include ancillary facilities including management, suites and social study spaces. The 72 studio, 39 one- and 32 two- bedroom flats would be PRS accommodation. A 4,170 sq ft commercial unit will also be developed on the ground floor suitable for a range of uses. If approved, the development is scheduled to be ready for occupation by September 2021. The façade of the partially surviving J & Riley Carr building on Bailey Lane would be retained, including the statue of Stanch the dog. The application is recommended for approval in a planning officer's report prepared for Sheffield City Council next Planning and Highways committee meeting on 4 September, subject to conditions. The report said: "The proposed development, which is considered to be acceptable in land use terms, provides an appropriate scale of enclosure to the eastern side of Rockingham Street and responds positively to the local topography. etc"

Peter (#1601) - true, I guess! But the FTSE All Share is flat since last November, we're down 25%. (From a spike, admittedly.)

230p, 240p targets from brokers, but the share price refuses to play along! I'd have thought that 200p against broker targets of 230-240p was pretty close the usual real world discount from brokers targets :-) Peter

Thanks EC ... putting both statements together, it looks to me that they've bought the freehold for the stu acc and undertaken to develop the BtR for the owner. And we have a figure for the former (c.£29m.) And there are quite a few university campuses in the Wembley area.

The Lum Chang website gives a bit more explanation of the nature and scale of the deal. Http://investor.lumchang.com.sg/newsroom/20180827_074956_L19_6UMU0HRT75MBT6NY.1.pdf

@ Glaws - you may be right, I thought with stu acc they usually announced an end buyer. As for the BtR flats, I think reading it your way is correct: delivering them to the owner. Thanks for the reinterpretation.

Jonwig I don't think the end buyer is necessarily lined up when they acquire the site - but usually arrives before development commences. As this already has planning this needs to happen in short order now. I read the "development agreement" for the BTR bit to infer that the vendor has retained ownership and thus not be carried to WJB's balance sheet. No idea on your other questions.

Some open questions on this: don't they usually indicate an end-buyer for student acc? And the agreement to build BtR apartments ... presumably the planning permission is conditional on this? And what proportion (if any) affordable housing? And presumably own balance sheet.

Good news - two large new schemes, one student (with planning consent already in place) and one BTR, to be added to the portfolio: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/watkin-jones-plc--wjg-/rns/update-on-student-accommodation-and-build-to-rent/201808280700078774Y/ "Update on Student Accommodation and Build to Rent developments Watkin Jones plc (AIM:WJG), a leading UK developer and constructor of multi occupancy property assets, with a focus on the student accommodation and build to rent sectors, announces that is has exchanged contracts to acquire a site in Wembley, London from Kelaty Propco Limited (a joint venture ultimately owned by Singapore incorporated Lum Chang Holdings Limited and Sin Heng Chang Private Ltd) (the 'Vendor'). The site benefits from an existing planning consent for a 599 bed student accommodation scheme, which will be developed by the Group for delivery in time for the 2021/22 academic year. In addition, as part of the arrangement, the Group has entered into a development agreement with the Vendor to deliver 300 build to rent apartments on an adjoining site, to be completed in March 2021. The securing of this opportunity in Wembley represents a significant addition to the Group's FY 2021 student accommodation and build to rent delivery pipelines."

Nice mention for WJG in this morning's Market Report in the Times.... Https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/business/mondi-packs-a-punch-amid-rise-of-online-shopping-wbtnv55b0 "Elsewhere, traders have been eying Watkin Jones, which said in its latest interim results that it was considering establishing a new investment vehicle for its build-to-rent developments. The group, better known for its student accommodation, has five build-to-rent development sites and expects to deliver more than 1,500 flats in the next five years."
