Next week, The Towns Fund Delivery Partner (TFDP), a consultancy consortium led by Arup including Copper Consultancy, Nichols, Grant Thornton, FutureGov and Savills, will be speaking alongside the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government at the Institute of Economic Development.

Online Conference on ‘Understanding Building Back Better’ on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 May.

In the post-plenary slot on day one, our panel session will provide insights on the Towns Fund from three different perspectives – government, Town and delivery partner. Delegates can expect to hear about lessons learned from the programme so far and what is in store over the next few months as more Town Deals move from development to delivery.

Our second session, over virtual breakfast on day two, will feature members of the Towns Fund Delivery Partner who will discuss how the consortium has come together to support towns through the Town Deal process and in building capability for the long-term.

Our Vice Chair Linda Taylor will be joining the second panel breakfast session next Wednesday 26 May, highlighting the work Copper and the TFDP team have been carrying out to support Towns Towns in their #engagement with local communities, businesses and other stakeholders as they develop their projects’ Business Cases.
