Have your say

Sheffield city region boasts a wealth of development related expertise, from architects and regeneration specialists, to building and civil engineering contractors, delegates to an international property conference have been told.

Simon Carr, managing director of Henry Boot Construction and a member of the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership board, was speaking during MIPIM, the international property show in the South of France.

He told key private sector partners and investors with interests in the Sheffield City Region: “We need to maximise the economic potential of our key physical assets, including Doncaster Sheffield Airport, the Advanced Manufacturing Park and, of course, Sheffield City Centre.

“Further development of these assets will support growth of our priority business sectors and the creation of those much needed jobs in the region.”

A private sector consortium, made up of leading property developers, agents, architects and other development and construction-related professionals joined forces to fund Sheffield’s presence at MIPIM this year.
