Future Development Plans – East of England; Sponsored by BDB Pitmans

Friday, 5th February 2021 1015hrs – 1245hrs

This virtual event will take a look at ongoing and future development and regeneration projects shaping the future vision for the East of England.

Towns and cities in the East of England are home to some of the most exciting and large scale regeneration initiatives in the UK.

Strategically located in close proximity to London and major infrastructure hubs and airports, the region is seeing an unprecedented level of growth with new towns set to be developed, thriving technology, innovation and education sectors which are retaining talent and boosting inward investment, and game-changing schemes being brought forward on levels never seen before.

Come and hear from some of those at the forefront of this transformational growth and discover how your organisation can be involved.

  • South Cambridgeshire District Council – A recent report showed that a minimum of 2,000 new homes are needed in the Greater Cambridge area every year, a number that will only rise as new jobs continue to be created.

Linking  two of the UK’s fastest-growing cities and world-leading research centres in Norwich and Cambridge, the Tech Corridor connects a network of development clusters and communities into a truly unique knowledge ecosystem. Linn will talk about how her organisation will be at the forefront of regeneration in the coming decade.
