East Midlands Declaration on Infrastructure Funding

East Midlands Declaration on Infrastructure Funding

At the East Midlands Infrastructure Summit on 27 November 2017, Cllr Kay Cutts, Leader Nottinghamshire County Council, Sir Peter SouIsby, City Mayor, Leicester City Council; Rt. Hon Nicky Morgan MP, Lilian Greenwood MP, Sir John Peace, Chairman, Midlands Engine; and Natalie Gasson, Chair, East Midlands Business Forum signed the East Midlands Declaration on Infrastructure Funding.

The Declaration is available here.

The summit was held by EMC working jointly with East Midlands Chambers of Commerce. With the backing of CBI, the Institute of Directors and the Federation of Small Businesses, it was perhaps the first example of where all regional business organisations and local authorities have held a joint event – and goes some way to show the strength of commitment to improve upon the current investment levels.

Over 100 people attended the event and included key note speakers including MPs, Local Authorities and leading business representatives from the road, rail and airport sectors.

The event gave a renewed emphasis on the importance of an effective and focused collective approach and progress will reported in the coming weeks.
