Quod is proud to announce that Director, Tim Waring, has been appointed as the new Chair of the Leeds Chamber Property Forum.
The Leeds Property Forum is a special interest group within the West and North Yorkshire Chamber. It aims to contribute to the positive future growth and development of the Leeds Metropolitan District by bringing together private sector representation from across the board. The group has already been instrumental in matters ranging from planning, transport investment – particularly in making the case for a single station to accommodate the HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail into the existing station footprint – to housing and the enhancement, redevelopment and use of Leeds Waterfront.
Tim Waring said on his appointment and the work of the Forum
“I am looking forward to working with stakeholders across the city region and beyond to continue driving Leeds forward. In my opinion, it is important that we have a planning system that is responsive to changing economic trends and delivers the development and infrastructure needs of the City. It is key that a wide range of homes, employment space and infrastructure are delivered in the right place, with the best level of connectivity, so that business can attract, recruit and retain from the widest available labour market.”
The announcement was made at the quarterly Property Forum event on 17th September.
