Speakers from the Greater Manchester and Liverpool City Region Combined Authorities, and Warrington, Salford and Lancashire councils, will discuss what makes a successful partnership with the private sector at Meet the Authorities later this month.
At the half-day event on Thursday 27 June, private sector representatives from Winckworth Sherwood, Muse, Lovell, Deloitte, and Public Sector Plc will also share their views on what good, and bad, delivery models look like, and where the private sector can be most effective in plugging the public sector skills gap.
Companies already signed-up to attend include Baker Mallett, Broadway Malyan, Cundall, Falconer Chester Hall, Fieldfisher, Galliford Try, Harworth Group, JLL, Knowsley Council, Laing O’Rourke, Maple Grove, Sigma, Trafford Housing Trust, and Wates.
Collectively, the councils speaking at the conference are working on schemes worth billions of pounds, and will be sharing their ambitions for the regeneration of town and city centres, and the chances for the property community to get involved in upcoming projects.
