THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
With the Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission due to publish its final report in spring 2018, this seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss plans aimed at unlocking economic growth in North Kent, South Essex and East London.
It will bring together policymakers with senior representatives from local authorities, infrastructure developers, businesses and their advisors, skills providers, universities and other key stakeholders to consider next steps for implementing the Commission’s report.
Delegates will assess priorities for creating internationally-competitive centres of excellence that build on the region’s strengths in areas such as the ports and logistics - as well as the opportunities for spreading growth across the South East, and for creating the skills base to underpin this growth.
Further sessions focus on priorities for creating a world-class hub for the creative industries and implementing the vision for the Thames Estuary Production Corridor, and next steps for developing the housing and infrastructure needed to support organisations based in the Thames Estuary and the wider community - including the future for Crossrail and the Lower Thames River Crossing, with a statutory consultation expected to begin in the summer.
