This seminar will bring together policymakers with key stakeholders to assess next steps for the Northern Powerhouse, and for supporting regional growth across the North of England.
It will be an opportunity to discuss key themes emerging from the Transport for the North (TfN) consultation on its Strategic Transport Plan for the North on transport connectivity and economic growth including strategic development corridors, a long term rail strategy, a new system of integrated and smart travel, and major road network improvements. The seminar will also be an opportunity to discuss the allocation of the £400 million of extra transport funding, which includes £100 million towards local road schemes to reduce congestion and £300 million of funding for Northern Powerhouse Rail.
Delegates will also discuss the initial impact of the introduction of Metro Mayors in the region, as well as the future for governance in the Powerhouse as government enters into discussions with the Liverpool City Region and Tees Valley to explore scope for further devolution, and with the Sheffield City Region electing its first Metro Mayor.
