Unlocking the Public Estate to deliver better places - free half day conference

26th June 2018

Join us for a free half day conference where leading experts will address how we can accelerate innovation and deliver fresh investment to drive economic growth, create jobs and deliver prosperity for the public sector across the UK.

Understand how existing assets can be re-purposed and re-defined to create and release value for landlords, providing much needed revenue streams, capital receipts and better places to live, work and play for local communities. The conference will be moderated by Prof Greg Clark CBE, Chairman, The Business of Cities and Deborah McLaughlin, Managing Director Real Estate Projects, Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure.
