New Anglia LEP’s Building Growth Group: Utilities Workshop

Join the New Anglia LEP’s Building Growth Group for a collaborative conference workshop on 20 September at Trinity Park, Ipswich. 

The workshop is designed to identify challenges and solutions in the construction and development industry relating to utility provision in order to maximise future economic growth and success in the East and build on the many successful discussions already had on the topic locally.   

Invitees include local authorities, developers and contractors as well as UK Power Networks, Anglian Water, Essex and Suffolk Water, BT and Cadent (tbc). If there is anyone specific you think would benefit from attending, please do let us know.

Topics to be covered will include:

  1. How do we improve relationships to ensure a more joined up approach to planning for growth?

  2. How can we improve productivity in the construction industry through regulatory change?

  3. How can we help upfront fund infrastructure through innovative mechanisms?

  4. Can we improve the collective process for resourcing and delivery?

  5. How does the industry change to remove barriers to productivity?

The workshop will begin at 9.00am and finish just before lunchtime.  Breakfast will be provided.
