West Yorkshire Economic Growth Forum

On the 18th of September, our colleagues Karen Nugent and Ana Cristobal joined around 300 delegates for the energizing West Yorkshire Economic Growth Forum. It was a great chance to hear about some of the exciting plans for the region and to meet the dynamic people helping deliver them.

The Northern Powerhouse moniker has detractors and supporters in equal measure but it’s value as a collective brand to leverage funding across the region was acknowledged by several speakers. Rather than competing for investment, councils across West Yorkshire see the value in working together for the benefit of the wider region.

From the major transport infrastructure works, public realm strategy for Leeds City Centre, plans to meet housing targets in Kirklees, Calderdale and beyond, to the importance of education institutions helping fill the skills gap and ensure no one is left behind, there are ambitious plans emerging and motivated people driving them forward, Page\Park are delighted to be part of it all.
