Event 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.

Rob Pearson, General Manager; Homes & Communities Agency will talk about the role that the HCA has in helping to address the housing shortage.

Charles Johnson, Commercial Director; 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. There is also more to come . . . . . . . . .

We also hope to hear from Richard Cook, Head of Residential; Lendlease and other speakers to be confirmed
