North West Square | Mott MacDonald Webinar: What does Leveling Up mean for cities?

Our panelists come from a wide range of geographies and will seek to answer: What does leveling up mean for cities?

Now that the industry has had time to digest the meaning of the Leveling Up white paper, join us to discuss the future direction of cities and urban areas in Britain.

Join us on March 24 at 1.30pm to hear from Andrew Guest, our Managing Director of the Western Division of the UK Buildings and Cities Unit. Andrew works closely with our new Cities Studio, combining our economic and regeneration capability with our planning and engineering design teams.

He will be joined by Manchester City Council’s new strategic director of growth and development, Becca Heron. Becca plays a key role in delivering the ambitions set out in the Our Manchester strategy, leading the city’s recovery from the pandemic, building on the successes of the past two decades to drive inclusive growth that will ensure the city continues to be one of Europe’s most exciting destinations to live, work and play.

We are also delighted to have Lord Bassam from Brighton joining us. In 2018/19, Lord Bassam chaired and drafted a report as chairman of the Lords Select Committee on the Future of Beach Towns, which recommended the expansion of Town Agreements and argued for improved connectivity and leveling. He is now co-director of Place at Business in the Community. This should turn out to be a very informative 60 minutes in your work week!
