The second event will welcome a delegation of 250+ to explore delivery, connectivity, communities and sectors as identified by the 2050 Growth Commission; sustainable communities and the Thames River; and explore the Thames Estuary as a place to invest.
Councils: learn from your peers how they are gearing up for growth, homes and jobs to make the most of the region’s revitalization.
