9 June: Private Sector Renewal

The final session in our Development and Renewal series will look at how local authorities can best work with the private sector in securing development and renewal in London.

With the creation of a London Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy and the planned localisation of business rates, there will be ever greater awareness of the charges levied by local authorities on developers and businesses; and, crucially, the relationship between these and the infrastructure and investment that they support.

At the same time, in an environment of reduced central government funding local authorities will be under pressure to maximise the income sources at their disposal to generate investment in infrastructure; whilst also considering the degree to which higher charges will impact on their ability to attract development and business into their area.

Our final session will explore these key themes and how local authorities can deliver development and renewal in this complex and challenging environment.  We will be joined by speakers from GLA and Cathedral Group to give viewpoints from central government and the private sector.
