Future Development Plans – Northamptonshire

Monday, 26th October 2020 1345hrs – 1530hrs

This online event will focus on major development and regeneration opportunities across Northamptonshire.

Northamptonshire is situated in a prime location to strategically benefit from some of the UK’s most ambitious investment programmes over the coming years. Not only will the £bns of infrastructure investment into the Midlands help connect the region like never before, but the focus on the Oxford Cambridge Arc will further enhance opportunities for investment for the region to maximise.

In this event we’ll be hearing from the Council and a number of developer’s who’re actively eyeing up land and potential development schemes and they’ll be sharing an update and insight into what and where they’re looking to develop.

This event will run in a similar manner to all of our physical events – with short presentations from several key speakers and opportunities for live Q&A and interaction.

George Candler,
Chief Executive
Professor Shân Wareing,
Deputy Vice Chancellor

Assistant Director: Asset Management and Development
