Latest speakers join Greater Manchester Development Update

Cllr Linda Thomas, leader of Bolton Council, and Stephen Wild, managing director of MediaCityUK, both currently overseeing the delivery of £1bn masterplans, have joined the line-up at this half-day conference examining the city region’s major regeneration projects on 27 September.

Tickets are now on sale, for attendees to hear about the latest large-scale schemes, retail, offices, homes and transport hubs that are being developed to secure the future success of Greater Manchester.

Find out how and where the centre is expanding, and the ways in which the towns are looking away from the city to define their own destinies and deliver ambitious, mixed-use developments.

The event will take a detailed look at a variety of large-scale projects, and discuss the politics and the policies shaping regeneration across the city region.

Speakers confirmed so far include:

Richard Roe, director of place at Trafford Council

John Searle, director of economy at Rochdale Council

Jonathan Spruce, interim strategy director of Transport for the North

Jessica Bowles, director of Bruntwood, delivering commercial schemes such as Circle Square, UA92 in Trafford, Manchester Science Corridor and Didsbury Technology Park
