Description

Cost: Free

In what has been an inconceivable year for all of us and with the promise of life returning to a new sense of normal with the roll-out of a national vaccine, we take this opportunity to take a detailed look at the role of local authorities and public bodies in shaping the post-pandemic recovery.

We will be running six bitesize sessions over two days, focussing on post-pandemic recovery and resilience in local government and local communities and the post 2020 landscape. By registering you can dip in and out of sessions of your choosing.

Day 1: Post pandemic recovery and resilience in local government and local communities


10am – 10.30am:

The Future of place

In this session we look at the positive trend of Local Government playing a vital role in post-pandemic recovery and continuing with place shaping. 

Town centre regeneration

Using real life case studies, our panel of public sector legal experts will lead a conversation with local authority representatives about recent and current schemes and the issues and outcomes in keeping town centre regeneration going.

Panellists include:

  • Alan Evans, Director or Regeneration and place, Wirral Borough Council

11.00am – 11.30am:

How can local authorities attract and choose the right funding and what are the attributes of alternative funding models?

With a veritable smorgasbord of new alternative to PWLB post-Brexit funding options such as bond issues, private placements, bank debt and the potential use of interest rate swaps, REITS  and Islamic finance, how can local authorities fund infrastructure and other regeneration projects?

Panellists include:

  • Neil Waller, Partner, Trowers & Hamlins
