It’s no secret that the past few years have been full of changes for the UK. The first whispers of the Northern Powerhouse started during the coalition government. The Conservative 2015 general election manifesto included a pledge to “build a Northern Powerhouse”, winning them seats across the North. But the subsequent Brexit vote and appointment of Theresa May as Prime Minister brought even uncertainty to the scheme, with speculations that the new PM intended to create a more nationwide scheme, boosting productivity outside the South East, rather than specifically in the North.
But are we still relying on London and central Government too much? Can the creation of the Northern Powerhouse continues to develop during our uncertain times? Or is now the time, more than ever, for the North to stand united together and ensure the continued development of the Northern Powerhouse?
Key talking points of the event will look towards our Government situation, the collaboration of our Northern leaders and the future plans to keep momentum for the Northern Powerhouse.
Previous Northern Powerhouse events have identified that issues such as housing, transport and infrastructure, skills shortages, lack of collaboration between northern cities with devolution deals and a shortage of government support continues to be the main focus of the discussions.
Much of the event will be driven by audience participation and a ran via Slido.com. All questions can be submitted by the audience and any question may be asked as long as it relates to the events subject. Questions will then be voted for to be addressed. Direct questioning will also be taken from the floor if time allows or we are informed that you would like to.
