Said Business School, Oxford - 11:30am, Friday 6 May 2011
The planning and economic environment is undergoing dramatic change. The Coalition Government wants to see businesses and councils work together to strengthen local economies. In this new context how will "Localism" help to create the right environment for business to grow and rebalance the economy towards the private sector?
This free seminar will discuss a range of issues emerging from the dismantling of regional government and the Localism Bill and how these are likely to impact on the Oxfordshire economy. It will be relevant to business leaders, investors, land owners, those in local government and the development industry with an interest in the future of the County.
