Manchester Development Plans | Speakers

We’ve put together another exceptional panel to speak at our Manchester event – guaranteed to give you information not in the public domain, details on procurement and partnership opportunities, and much more. Speakers include:

Tony Oakman – Chief Executive Officer, Bolton Council

Bolton has a vision for the town centre which will see it transformed by 2030 – creating a world-class destination where there is a desire to work, live, study, visit and invest. The masterplan will see £1.2bn of investment and development into the town over the coming years – and the council have kickstarted this by putting forward a £100m development fund.

Areas identified by the council for growth are include a new town centre, more Grade A office developments to stimulate growth, the expansion of the University of Bolton, the creation of town centre residential living, new infrastructure and more.

Tony will therefore be sharing their vision for Bolton, and crucially he’ll give the fine details on timeframes, opportunities, development zones and procurement opportunities as the town is revitalised.

Dan Brooks – Director, MODA

MODA are one of the leading firms in the private rented sector (PRS) and they’re bringing the next generation of neighbourhoods for rent to Manchester. The city is set to play a key role in their strategic masterplan – evident by the investment and development into the Angel Gardens scheme housing more than 450 homes within Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

With the city set to be the focus of future schemes for MODA we’ll be hearing directly from Dan Brooks on what potential projects are coming to fruition over the coming months – and that will be a myriad of procurement and partnership opportunities over the coming years. This event offers a unique opportunity to meet MODA, hear about their future plans and how you and youre business can get involved.

Howard Lord – Managing Director, CERT Property

CERT Property are continuing to drive forward their investment into Manchester – and they have ‘a strong emotional bias guiding’ them towards investing in Manchester. They’re at the forefront of several big schemes in the regional including the 10-storey Insignia project in Old Trafford, but the most exciting part of Howard’s presentation may come around future opportunities.

They’re in negotiations on a number of sites to bring forward further projects in the city – and you’ll be able to discuss details about their future plans with CERT Property on the evening. In terms of procurement and partnerships they’re keen to engage directly with local companies and contractors with a ‘preferance to support local businesses and supply chains wherever possible’ which offers a great opportunity for those attending the event.

Nicola Kane – Head of Strategic Planning & Research, Transport for Greater Manchester

Infrastructure will lay the foundations for the future vision for Greater Manchester – and as they enter consultation there is a huge amount of work that is set to happen across the region to unlock development sites and connect the region, all of which is yet to be procured.

Their 2040 Strategy will be the base of Nicola’s presentation, with a more focused look into the 2020-2025 plans which are moving forward at pace. Those plans will offer major opportunities for those within the infrastructure industry to get involved, but also that infrastructure is set to unlock some exceptional opportunities for investment, development, regeneration and growth – and we’ll hear about what the masterplan will transform Greater Manchester.
