About the event

How can we accelerate and deliver innovation and investment into public sector real estate and new infrastructure projects to further drive UK economic growth and release value?

This half day conference will look to debate the need for further reform and a fresh approach to partnering to deliver key projects that will unlock value and deliver fresh opportunities across key UK locations to maximise revenues, create jobs and drive efficiency opportunities.

Following the BREXIT vote, cities need to become more adept at attracting private sector investment and expertise to maximise economic growth within their regions. With the emphasis on regional growth, local authorities need to find new ways of creating and managing funds to further regenerate communities.

Despite a flow of good ideas, the challenge is complex, and there is a failure to spread creative solutions and drive the scalability of projects. The momentum and shift that is now underway from Central Government to regional devolution presents a genuine opportunity to be more radical in galvanising an innovative approach across Local Government at the regional level.
