Tony Pidgley took advantage of the firm’s “own build scheme”, where employees can get good rates on construction work, according to the firm’s annual report. He was paid a total of £2.25m last year, while Rob Perrins, managing director, collected £1.1m, both in line with last year. Berkeley recorded pre-tax profits of £110.3m in the period, a decline of 8.4 per cent. Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

BGC hits out at “absurd” Scottish casino reopening schedule

first_img“Despite repeated invitations, it is regrettable that no Scottish Government official has even visited any of our members’ casinos to see for themselves the excellent anti-Covid measures which they have put in place. Ackerley’s report is based on evidence from Food Alert and examined venues including Grosvenor Casino locations in Edinburgh and Glasgow. “The casino industry has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic by embracing the need to implement a full range of stringent measures to keep staff and customers safe,” Acklerley said. “In my opinion, this industry’s response has resulted in it being as safe, if not safer, during the pandemic than many others, for example some other parts of the hospitality sector, where socialising and alcohol consumption is the norm. “We’re now appealing to the First Minister and the Scottish government to pay heed to this compelling evidence. When parts of the country return to level 2 status, casinos must be allowed to open and the industry deserves to be treated with parity and fairness.  The BGC chief added that members of the Scottish Government had not visited any BGC casinos to see how the venues were working to limit the spread of the virus. The Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has called for casinos to open alongside other hospitality venues in Scotland, after a report from hygiene expert Dr Lisa Acklerley said there was “no logical or scientific reason” for the distinction. Regions: UK & Ireland However, in the report, Ackerly said casinos appear to be safer than hospitality venues such as pubs and restaurants. “It clearly concludes that forcing casinos to remain closed in level 2 regions, whilst other hospitality businesses can open, is absurd. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter  “As Dr Ackerley’s report confirms, casinos are as safe, if not safer, than many other hospitality venues, such as pubs and restaurants, so why are they being treated differently? In England, casinos will be rightly safely reopened when the rest of the hospitality is. “Dr Ackerley’s findings provide objective, scientific evidence that casinos have been treated unfairly and the time has come for the correction to be made,” Swaine said.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Although casinos may reopen at the same time as pubs and restaurants in England, with the earliest possible reopening date set for 17 May, in Scotland, pubs and restaurants may reopen in regions under level three, but casinos must wait until regions reach level two. 9th March 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle  “It is not too late for the Scottish government to think again, follow the evidence and allow casinos to safely re-open in Level 2.” “All we ask is for an equitable approach to hospitality, based on the highest quality evidence that exists.” “I find that there is no reason for the casino industry to be treated more harshly in terms of lockdown measures than the rest of hospitality; in fact, it can be seen that the measures taken by casinos actually offer more protection to staff and the public.  BGC hits out at “absurd” Scottish casino reopening schedule “Ordering the closure of casinos in level 2 areas in Scotland was a needless blow for the 700 hardworking men and women that they employ,” Dugher said. Land-based casino Tags: Scotland Covid-19 Betting and Gaming Council BGC chief executive Michael Dugher said the restriction would cause unnecessary harm to those who work in the casino industry. Jonathon Swaine, managing director of Grosvenor Casinos, said the Scottish Government should change its reopening plans in order to treat casinos and other hospitality businesses similarly.

Rene Ranger has a go at the Digby Ioane turtle

first_imgFriday Apr 22, 2011 Rene Ranger has a go at the Digby Ioane turtle The Blues went top of the Super Rugby table after a 40-23 win over the Melbourne Rebels in Auckland earlier today. Rene Ranger scored twice, and had a go at a celebration of his own. The home side started well with two early tries, but in typical fashion, the Rebels came back at them, with the game in the balance at one stage thanks to some good goal kicking from Danny Cirpriani. The former England flyhalf unfortunately let himself down with his defence though, as was clear to see on more than one occasion. Rene Ranger scored the opening try within a few minutes of kick off, brushing off would-be tacklers while flying down the wing. The site producer didn’t pick it up initially, but Ranger and a few of the Blues boys had a go at the much hyped Digby Ioane celebration, in their own way. While it was a bit of a pisstake, to be frank, it’s all in good spirits as Ioane himself tweeted earlier “Just saw ranger try!!!!! That is 2 funny:) the man!!!!!!”. Blues scrumhalf Alby Mathewson later said that they’d been practising it at the captains run yesterday.

According to the report, increased access to loans and relatively low delinquency levels were the driving factors that helped the consumer credit industry post positive annual changes at the end of 2017.“For the most part, consumers are paying their debts in a timely fashion, which has been especially evident for mortgages and personal loans,” said Matt Komos, VP of Research and Consulting at TransUnion. This is likely a result of the strong economy, which has helped consumers manage their personal balance sheets and build confidence.”According to the report, TransUnion observed 20.3 million more accounts in 2017 across auto, credit card, mortgage, and unsecured personal loans. During the fourth quarter of 2017, the serious mortgage delinquency rate declined to 1.86 percent compared to 2.28 percent during the same period in 2016.“Mortgage delinquency rates continue to decline, reaching their lowest levels since the recession,” said Joe Mellman, SVP and Mortgage Business Leader at TransUnion. “This largely reflects recession-era defaults having worked their way out of the system and recent originations being underwritten to a very high standard.”Average mortgage debt for all borrowers rose to $201,736 at the conclusion of 2017, up more than $7,000 from the previous year. At the same time, the report noted, average new mortgage account balances that were measured in the prior quarter, due to reporting lag, decreased on an annual basis, declining to $228,563 in Q3 2017 from $235,820 in Q3 2016. “This is a reversal from a trend where such balances rose on an annual basis each quarter between Q3 2014 and Q4 2016,” the report noted.“This quarter we see an interesting dynamic with seemingly contradictory data points in average mortgage debt per borrower increasing while average new account balances declined,” said Mellman. “There could be multiple factors contributing to this, including cash-out refis increasing average mortgage debt, the drop in refi share lowering average new account balances (since average refi size can be larger than average purchase size), and a change in the mix of purchase origination amounts towards lower balances.”Looking at the market in 2018, Mellman told DS News that the market could see a rise in purchase volumes. “Purchase demand is very strong in the market and we are likely to see an increase in purchase volumes during the year,” he said. “However, the low-inventory in the housing market remains a cause for concern. As home prices rise due to the low inventory, some people are choosing to remodel their starter homes rather than purchasing larger ones.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more

Filed by Advocate Ankit Verma, the present PIL seeks extension of the lockdown in Delhi at least till June 30. The Petitioner has argued that the relaxations given under the new ‘Unlock 1.0’ Guidelines have severely affected the health concerns of residents of Delhi as the State has the maximum number of CIVID19 cases in the country as per the population rate. The Petitioner also alleges that no proper arrangements were made before declaring Unlock 1.0 which is evident by the fact that people are violating social distancing norms and police officials are not handling the situation as per the protocols. While acknowledging that the lockdown does breach certain human rights of the citizens, the Petitioner believes that the first and foremost duty of both the Centre and the Delhi Government is to protect the well being of the citizens. In addition to the re-imposition of the lockdown, the Petitioner also demands the sealing of Delhi’s orders and as well as prohibition of passenger flights. In addition to this, the Petitioner has highlighted the observations made by the Delhi High Court in a suo moto case on COVID19 patients to argue that the medical infrastructure is not functioning properly and is inadequate to cater to the peak in number of cases which is directly attributed to the relaxing of the lockdown. The petition will come up for hearing on Friday. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Here’s what tenants are paying at 860 Washington

Shortly before the ground lease sale, Romanoff bought out Property Group in a sale-leaseback deal valuing the land at the $80 million.Meadow Partners and CalPERS financed their acquisition with a $116 million loan from JPMorgan Chase, which has been included in a CMBS transaction named BMARK 2021-B23. Loan documents provide an inside look at the property’s finances — and a rent roll including prominent tech tenants like Alibaba and Tesla.ADVERTISEMENTAs of November, the 117,230-square-foot office building is 97 percent leased to seven tenants, all paying triple-digit rents per square foot.The largest tenant is Chinese tech giant Alibaba, occupying more than a quarter of the total rentable space — and with the right of first offer for any tenant space that becomes available at the property, according to an S&P Global report. The company and its founder Jack Ma are currently facing pressure from Chinese regulators which led a financial services subsidiary, Ant Group, to cancel its IPO last fall.The 11,000-square-foot ground-floor retail space is fully occupied by Tesla’s only store in Manhattan, paying nearly $500 per square foot in annual rent — more than a quarter of the property’s total rent bill. Tesla CEO Elon Musk became the world’s richest person last month, as the company’s stock price has more than quintupled over the past year.Other tenants at the building at are Baker Brothers Investments, an investor in life sciences companies; Delos, a wellness real estate and technology firm; Social Finance, a SoftBank-backed online personal finance company; LG Capital Investors, the family office of Blackstone alum Lawrence Guffey; and San Francisco-based venture capital firm Expa LLC, which executed a new lease at the property during the pandemic.Read moreMeadow Partners picks up 860 Washington ground lease for $230MMeatpacking’s 860 Washington valued at $80M in sale-leasebackOnline lender SoFi inks pricey office lease at 860 WashingtonRomanoff Equities strikes deal with partner for Meatpacking District office, retail project In a reflection of the financial heft of its tenants, rent collection at 860 Washington has held strong at 100 percent throughout the pandemic.Meanwhile, physical occupancy at the building was less than 10 percent when S&P analysts visited the property in January.
