Estates Gazette Manchester Question Time

September 15, 2015

On September 10th GHA Director, Glenn Howells, joined property industry heavyweights on an Estates Gazette’s Question Time panel. The event, held on the top floor of our award winning One St Peter’s Square in Manchester, considered the “Northern Powerhouse” and its potential to encourage sustainable growth outside of London and the South East.

The debate touched upon the pitfalls of tax incentives to lure business away from London, HS2, the benefits of encouraging regional start-ups over moving government departments away from London, the importance of infrastructure investment to support the influx of people and businesses to the north, and the Manchester-centric nature of the northern powerhouse concept.

Full coverage of the debate can be found on the Estates Gazette website.
