THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will assess next steps for developing the Cambridge - Milton Keynes - Oxford Corridor.
It will be an opportunity to examine the Government’s response, expected later this year, to the NIC’s Partnering for Prosperity report - which recommended the creation of a joined-up strategy linking infrastructure and homes, and the provision of new east-west transport links - and to consider further steps that might be taken to improve transport links in the area.
Delegates will also discuss the future for regional governance - focusing on the role for local authorities, LEPs and combined authorities - and challenges for improving collaboration between key stakeholders in the region.
Further sessions will assess what more might be done to underpin economic growth - looking at the priorities for meeting skills needs across key sectors, improving east-west transport connectivity, meeting the demand for new housing, and addressing key issues around planning, the environment, skills, finance, public concerns and potential expansion.
