London development pipeline

Just over a quarter of the assets in our London Portfolio are development prospects. These are either on site, with planning consent, or in design. We have made excellent progress on our development pipeline and increased our focus on the West End. Our work in Victoria, SW1 is set to transform the area into one of central London’s most desirable places to work, live, shop and invest.

Total development cost (£m)
Total development cost refers to the book value of the land at the commencement of the project, the estimated capital expenditure required to develop the scheme from the start of the financial year in which the property is added to our development programme, together with capitalised interest, being the Group's borrowing costs associated with direct expenditure on the property under development. Interest is also capitalised on the purchase cost of land or property where it is acquired specifically for redevelopment. Of the properties in the development pipeline at 30 September 2012, there were no properties on which interest was capitalised on the land cost. The figures for total development costs include £152.0m for the residential elements of Kings Gate, SW1.

Net income/ERV
Net income/ERV represents headline annual rent on let units plus ERV at 30 September 2012 on unlet units.
