This webinar will focus on the expansion of ports and the surrounding brownfield sites around ports.
This webinar will bring together a high-level panel of expert speakers to discuss the role UK ports will play in driving the UK’s economy. The panel will discuss major new developments/expansions planned across the UK, consider the future of ports as we see a continued increase in imports and exports, and review the industry in a Post-Covid and Post-Brexit world whilst also looking at opportunities and challenges across the sector as a whole.
We’ll be gathering those leading ports land, development and estates strategies to hear about their plans – with information on their vision, their future development projects and information on procurement opportunities.
Planning and Infrastructure partner, David Mundy from BDB Pitmans will be speaking on the topic of Freeports and associated legal issues including the need for and authorisation of infrastructure and associated planning issues and will be joined by Chief Executive of UK Major Ports Group, Tim Morris, Group Planning Director at Peel Ports, Warren Marshall and Chief Commercial Officer at Port of Dover, Barbara Buczek.
This event will run in a similar manner to all of their physical events – with short presentations from several key speakers and opportunities for live Q&A and interaction.
