Conference Overview

Since devolution became the buzz word in the UK regions local councils have been far more proactive in terms of securing inward investment, government funding and setting out a development plan for the City. York is no exception to this and with it’s beautiful and unique architecture and strong reputation as a tourist resort it is now ideally poised to take advantage of the momentum that the Midlands Engine and ‘One Yorkshire’ has created and is becoming a key area for business.

Ideally placed near the airport, with good train links to London and Leeds and with a very strong road network, the capital of Yorkshire has lots to offer and is a very attractive place to work and live.

We have some very strong speakers for you to hear from who will both set the scene for the City but will also talk about where the future projects will lie and how they will be procured.

Mary Weastell, CEO, York City Council will be joined by Neil Ferris, Corporate Director Economy & Place; City of York Council and will share the plans that the city has to develop the commercial, residential and transportation infrastructure.

Richard Arnold, Director at Wrenbridge Sport, will give an overview of the York Community Stadium project. Wrenbridge Sport are the development partner and project manger alongside leisure operator Greenwich Leisure Ltd. The project incorporates an 8,000 seat stadium with a leisure complex including a swimming pool, gym, climbing wall and much more including retail and cinema developments on site.

Charles Johnson, Head of Planning Development at Leeds Bradford Airport will talk us through the expansion plans at the airport and how the new infrastructure links have been a game changer for them.

Tom Devine has worked with the Science Museum Group since 2015 to help bring forward the National Railway Museum masterplan and the Museum’s role in the York Central Partnership.
