Newham LBC chief executive Wendy Thompson has been appointed by the government to the urban task force, reports The Financial Times (p17).

The 14-member group, set up to make better use of brownfield sites for housing, will also include property developers, environmentalists and consultants.

Environment secretary John Prescott announced plans for the task force in February, when he increased the proportion of new homes to be built on previously developed land over the next ten years from 50% to 60%.
