Join the dialogue and be part of the future of Preston.
Hosted by Preston City Council and partners.

The evidence that Preston is changing is everywhere.

Alongside the Fishergate scheme, the city centre has become home to a range of new restaurants, bars and cafes as well as the expanding Guild Hall, soon-to-be-open Preston Markets and Harris hotel. Cranes and other construction vehicles can be seen around the University of Central Lancashire campus, as it continues to grow and develop. Across the city, the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal is making a significant investment into the area, implementing major infrastructural systems, generating new jobs and enabling the development of homes.

Join us for this opportunity to be involved in public and private sector dialogue about the future of Preston and how we together can establish it as a successful city.

Doors open at 8am, with light refreshments being served.

Compered by Richard Slater (Lancashire Business View), presentations will be given by Andrew Carter (Centre for Cities) and Lorraine Norris (Preston City Council). They will then be joined by Caroline Baker (Cushman & Wakefield) and David Taylor (University of Central Lancashire) for a panel discussion and question time*.

There will be time available at the end for further networking.

Booking is essential.
