Testimonials

This online event was very well organised with a fantastic range of topics and very experienced speakers. It has given me a lot of food for thought which I will be sharing across relevant services in Sutton.

Interesting, excellent content, great to hear from other local authorities and what they are doing with regards to property licensing to address widespread management and disrepair issues in the PRS.

Business Change ManagerBusiness Change Manager - Sheffield City Council
Predicting the future of infrastructure as vital as the country's Road Network could seem impossible. Being able to listen to some of the leading thinkers, innovators and policy-makers in this field makes the impossible feel that little bit more possible, and the future a little less opaque.
