Join Place North West, BECG and Savills for the first mayoral debate of the 2021 elections on 16 March.
Candidates will take to the virtual stage as they compete to become metro mayor of the Liverpool City Region or mayor of Greater Manchester. Those participating in this free event include Greater Manchester mayoral hopefuls Andy Burnham from Labour and Simon Lepori from the Liberal Democrats.
From Liverpool, Labour candidate Steve Rotheram, the Green Party’s Gary Cargill, and the Conservatives’ Jade Marsden will set out their stalls as they campaign to be elected as metro mayor of the Liverpool City Region.
The event will see the region’s leading property and construction decision makers gather to hear the candidates discuss their priorities and policies for the Greater Manchester and Liverpool city regions, ahead of the elections on 6 May 2021.
Delegates will be offered the opportunity to ask the contenders exactly what they plan to do to tackle issues affecting the economic and social development of the North West’s biggest conurbations.
Topics for debate include housing; transport and infrastructure; development and investment; skills and unemployment; health and social care; Green Belt release and the new-look Greater Manchester Spatial Framework; the impact of Brexit, and the candidates’ personal priorities.
The event is sponsored by BECG and Savills.
Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, this event will be held virtually using Remo, a powerful platform that enables delegates to video chat with other attendees, pose questions to speakers and exchange messages via direct messaging. There is no need to download any software.
