  • Eleanor Deeley is a Partner in Cushman & Wakefield’s Birmingham office; she will set the scene for these presentations with a presentation on the state of the market in the City and West Midlands, commenting on current and future development sites and also why Birmingham is being successful.
  • Richard Probert is the Project Director for Snowhill who will update us on this scheme and others that Ballymore are looking at.
  • Richard Norgrove is Property Director at Hortons Estates, a prolific Midlands developer with several active schemes.
