Retail development pipeline

Our priority is to time our development activity in line with the market cycle to maximise returns.

Our development schemes are creating the right spaces in the right locations to meet the needs of successful businesses. In Retail we secure significant levels of pre-lettings before we start construction.

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, interest was capitalised on the land cost at Trinity Leeds and 185-221 Buchanan Street, Glasgow. The figures for total development costs include £12.9m for the residential elements of 185-221 Buchanan Street, Glasgow.

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