December 4 @ 1530hrs - 1900hrs

Hull & Humberside Development Plans 2017 | Event


Hull – The UK’s City of Culture has had quite a year.

You certainly can’t forget about Hull when you talk about Yorkshire Devolution and it is fair to say that the City is really flourishing at the present time; It captures the best of rural and city living and with a strong road and rail network and a major airport nearby; urban and international connectivity is key. Devolution has really captured the imagination of both private and public sector players.

Building on our recent conference in West Yorkshire and other events in Yorkshire we are very pleased to be going back to Hull to shed some light on some significant development opportunities and some of the markets leading players to share with you their key schemes and plans for the future.

We have 5 speakers who will provide you with an abundance of market intel and procurement opportunities and also an opportunity to discuss with them how you can work with them going forward.

Stephen Willis the Chief Finance Officer at the University of Hull

Matt Jukes the CEO of the City Council will set the scene regarding frameworks and schemes that are on their radar and what is happening in the City.

Martin Green will talk about the positive impact that being the City of Culture has had on Hull and why it has become an attractive place to live and work.

David Morriss is the Head of property at ABP who have some new schemes to discuss.

The HCA will undoubtedly have rebranded as ‘Homes England’ by the time we hear from Rob and are set to play a massive role in solving the housing crisis as a land owner, developer and also a funder.

Lots to listen to, lots to talk about and some fabulous networking opportunities to meet clients and fellow professionals in the Humberside area.
