Virtual Conference

Transport-led Development in the North of England

Maximising development and growth throughout the North with improved transport and connectivity
Wednesday 21 October 2020 Virtual Conference
With significant transport investment in the North of England planned and underway, how can areas work collaboratively to maximise the development, housing and growth potential of these projects? This focused event will provide you with the latest transport investment plans, the timelines for project delivery and the opportunities for regeneration and development created by transport improvement. Hear plans for a range of different transport projects, and explore how to deliver a joined up transport strategy for the North of England through collaboration to fully unlock the benefits and opportunities created.

Attend to explore the different approaches for city development, how to identify the best opportunities for investment through modelling and how to identify what types of infrastructure are needed. The day will also focus on cities plans, including how areas can work collaboratively.
