The end of austerity? Derby after 2020

Catch up with our event in Derby discussing what the end of austerity means for the city

Event starts at 5pm on 16 May 2019 at Derby Council House, Corporation Street, Derby, DE1 2FS

How have local leaders in Derby responded to austerity, and what’s next for the city?

Centre for Cities and Derby City Council hosted an event looking ahead to the end of austerity for local areas around the country.

Cities Outlook 2019 highlighted the magnitude of the funding cuts faced by cities and the resilience their leadership demonstrated – improving local government efficiency and maintaining vital service provision for the most vulnerable, under mounting pressure and increased needs.

This event was an opportunity to hear from local civic and business leaders in Derby, including Council Chief Executive Carole Mills, and Claire Twells, Business Development Partner at Smith Partnership and Andy Storer, Chief Executive of Nuclear AMRC.

They spoke about their ambitions and priorities in a new, if challenging, age. It was open to the public and invited the local business community, community groups and other interested residents to discuss and debate the opportunities for the city, the actions the city and business community can take, and consider the role that national government should play.

Time: 5pm

Date:  Thursday 16 May

Location:  Derby Council House, Corporation Street, Derby, DE1 2FS
