May Breakfast Briefing on Oxford-Cambridge Growth Curve

Come and hear the latest about the Oxford-Cambridge Growth Curve at our breakfast briefing seminar in Milton Keynes. Speakers include the Mayor of Cambridge and Peterborough, Leader of Cherwell District Council and Chair of The Arc Leaders Group, and Bidwells.

The Government has shown much enthusiasm for joining these two esteemed world-leading university towns with much promised including new rail and road links and one million new homes. How all this will be delivered, and how it will be managed, is not so clear.

Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion, and a full networking breakfast will be provided.

Join us on Wednesday 8th May, from 8:00am – 10:00am, at Jurys Inn Milton Keynes. Email Kasia on to register.
