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.
