The Levelling-Up Agenda challenges many of our development sectors to consider the contribution they can make to economic growth and the search for a step change in growth and opportunity for local communities. A recent BPF report has set out the contribution the industrial and logistics sector particularly has to play but also how restricted space could impact any levelling-up ambitions. More broadly employment land and development, its allocation and even protection is an important facet of any successful economy.
On this podcast we bring together representatives from the industrial and logistics sector to talk through the value these schemes can deliver in the levelling-up context, opportunities for intensification and consider the hurdles currently faced in the delivery at each level.
Featuring: James Donagh, Barton Willmore, now Stantec (Chair); Clare Bottle, UK Warehousing Association; Gareth Osborn, DHL Supply Chain; Matt Griffith, Business West/British Chamber of Commerce; Gareth Prichard, Barton Willmore, now Stantec.
