West London’s opportunity to build back better to be debated at annual summit

Industry leaders from the public and private sectors are to discuss West London’s important role in the UK’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 crisis at their annual summit this September.

The Capital West London Build and Recover Summit will take place, virtually, on 29 September, with a focus on inclusive regeneration and the promotion of a sustainable, green economy.

The online event will see an emphasis on the seven themes of the sub-region’s recovery strategy and the potential opportunities that recent events have presented to build back better for its communities. Topics of debate will range from aviation communities, the future of town centres, housing and infrastructure, to growth sectors, skills and employment.

West London’s economy is a vital growth engine for the UK, and pre-COVID-19, contributed 4% of national GVA. The sub-region’s leaders have already started implementing plans to drive its economy, which will in turn boost national economic prospects.

Representatives from Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow and Hounslow councils will be speaking, joining leading business figures in keynote addresses, webinars, opportunity site presentations and round tables to promote West London and discuss opportunities to create a stronger, more sustainable future for the sub-region.

Tickets for this summit, which is being delivered in partnership with Capital West London partners London & Partners, Middlesex University, West London Business, WSP and YOO Capital, cost just £75+VAT if booked before 6 September.

David Francis, Director of the West London Alliance, said: “West London is set to play a crucial role in the UK’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 crisis. The Capital West London Build and Recover Summit is an exciting opportunity for delegates to find out more about work underway across the sub-region to drive forward sustainable and inclusive regeneration for our communities now and in the future.”

Cath Shaw, Programme Director for West London Economic Recovery, said: “The Capital West London Build and Recover Summit comes at a really important time for the sub-region. We’re delighted to be a part of it and joining stakeholders and industry leaders to push forward the shaping of our own – and the UK’s – recovery.”

Paul Najsarek, Chief Executive of Ealing Council, said: “The Capital West London Build and Recover Summit will give delegates the opportunity to hear from key players in the public and private sector about how the sub-region is ready to grow back stronger. We’re looking forward to being part of the day and demonstrating how Ealing has been working hard to ensure the swift recovery of its economy and is continuing to deliver more genuinely affordable homes.”
