Securing the future for Britain’s high streets and town centres

Britain’s town centres and high streets are often at the heart of people’s sense of place and local identity.

Speakers:

Britain’s town centres and high streets are often at the heart of people’s sense of place and local identity. Changes in global and local economies have put this under pressure, with 1 in 12 shops having closed in England and Wales in the last 5 years. With the radical global shift in how we use and relate to our local resources, it may be time to empower local authorities and communities to deliver a high street revolution.

Home for Good: what the Conservative Government could do to help councils end rough sleeping

Panel discussion exploring the action needed to help local areas end rough sleeping with Conservative politicians from national and local government.

Speakers:

With a new Conservative leader in place, and as we look ahead to a three-year Spending Review next year, it is a crucial time for the Conservative Government to reaffirm its commitment to ending rough sleeping by 2027 and set out the next steps to achieve this aim. The panel will discuss what councils can do, the role of other local agencies and the next steps for the national rough sleeping strategy.

Manchester Central : Central 5

How does the modern Conservative Party reconnect with the tradition of social housebuilding?

With millions trapped privately renting and locked out of home ownership, is now the time to reconnect with the tradition of social housebuilding?

Speakers:

We know a stable home is a vital part of a successful society. And for previous generations social housing offered this, but now, for too many, social housing and homeownership are out of reach, meaning only unstable and expensive private renting is left. In the post war era, Conservatives led the way in social housing delivery, and now as much as ever the Conservative Party needs to reconnect with its social home history. Join us to discuss how this can be achieved.

Midland Hotel : Derby Suite

Speakers:
