Restart, revive and renew
Over 200 attendees at yesterday’s online Derby Property Zoommit, heard the Chief Executive of Bondholder Derby City Council, Paul Simpson, outline the ambitions of the city’s Economic Recovery Task Force to restart, revive and renew Derby post-Covid.
The event came just days after the announcement of the City Council’s plans, along with fellow Bondholder St James Securities, to deliver a new 3,500 seater performance venue in Derby’s Becketwell area.
Paul Simpson said: "We need to encourage more people to come to Derby city centre...we need to diversify our city centre offer - there is so much more that we can do." His presentation emphasised the need to meet the health and economic challenges by delivering on the city's existing investment pipeline as well as seeking support from government for additional resources.
