LREF is an annual forum which brings together leaders from the public sector, government, investment and business communities to drive conversations around sustainable development in cities.
The theme of this year’s conference was Think Beyond. The day was centred around how towns and cities can think differently to meet net-zero targets, improve equality and quality of life for everyone within them. The aim was to rethink how cities function and to reimagine what urban areas will look like long-term, considering infrastructure, policy and sustainability.
As a city-region that prides itself on the ability to think beyond and has ambitions to provide a greener, fairer, more prosperous city-region for all, Greater Manchester. Therefore, it was great to take a delegation of partners who believe in a collaborative approach to regeneration and development.
Greater Manchester’s LREF partners included Civic Engineers, EPR Architects, Gleeds, Manchester City Council, Morgan Sindall, Renaker Build, Salboy, Salford City Council, SimpsonHaugh, Transport for Greater Manchester, Trilogy, U+I and Urban Splash.
