Conference Overview

There is no doubt that Hertfordshire is strategically placed to benefit hugely from schemes happening across the UK. Its proximity to London has always been a key asset, it’ll be at the heart of the new proposed infrastructure arc between Oxford-Cambridge, and it has strong infrastructure links to the wider UK network. Therefore it’s no surprise that Hertfordshire is gearing up for growth. The 11 councils which make up Hertfordshire are planning to deliver 100,000 new homes by 2031, and a comprehensive region-wide study is underway to discover the investment needed into transport, infrastructure, schools, healthcare and more – and with a spurt of new job opportunities set to arise from major development zones across the region it’s an exciting period to be working in Hertfordshire. We’ll be hearing from some of those central to the future plans, and hearing about their own major schemes and projects including:

  • Ian Grimes; Director of Estates at the University of Hertfordshire. The last 10 years have seen ambitious investment and growth in the University’s campus – but the next decade promises much more. The University is coming to the end of its 2020 Estates Vision – and with that comes the opportunity to look at the next 10-15 years, and Ian will be sharing details of what the future holds and how you can get involved.
  • Paul Mumford; Strategic Project Director at Places for People. They’re one of the largest property and leisure management, development and regeneration companies in the UK – managing 150,000+ homes, and Hertfordshire is a region they continue to look for work in. One of their current developments is Gilston Park Estate, part of the Harlow & Gilston Garden Town, which is set for 8,500 new homes and the complementary services and amenities needed such as education, leisure and health facilities. Paul will talk about the new town and how to get involved as they continue their procurement process.
  • Patsy Dell; Assistant Director for Strategic Planning, Infrastructure and Economy at Hertfordshire County Council. The major Gilston Park Estate project is at the forefront of schemes, and their leading bids to unlocking crucial infrastructure – with a bid recently made for £150m+ to the HIF. That will need to massive infrastructure projects, and many other development zones and sites being freed up, and Patsy will share details ahead of this exciting period of growth for Hertfordshire.

We expect to be in a position to announce additional speakers shortly.
