Conference Overview

Leeds City Centre is set to double in size! That’s one of the key messages we keep hearing about Leeds as it continues to thrive – driving inward investment, developments and regeneration schemes across the wider region. The South Bank and Kirkstall Forge developments are central to those plans and Leeds City Council will share details on their importance to development within the wider community before we hear specific details on the vision and timelines for each scheme through presentations from Vastint and CEG. We’ll be joined by:

  • Andrew Cobden; Managing Director at Vastint. Vastint are set to join us to discuss the incredibly ambitious plans to regenerate the former Tetleys site in the South Bank area – with the development and regeneration set to unlock huge opportunities around the wider region.
  • David Hodgson; Regional Head of Strategic Development – North and Theresa White; Head of Workspace at CEG. He’ll talking through CEG’s portfolio of work within Yorkshire, from their focus on the Kirkstall Forge / Soutbank scheme to a 3,000 residential project in Harrogate on the outskirts of Leeds.
  • Adam Brannen; Head of Regeneration at Leeds City Council. He’ll be sharing an overview of the developments zones across the City from the South Bank to White Rose and how those in the audience can get involved in procurement opportunities and more.

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