Lambeth council officers, including Sandra Roebuck, assistant director, investment and growth, are this week at the 2017 MIPIM meeting at Cannes in the South of France – billed as “the world’s leading property market”.
They spoke at an event in the London pavilion and hosted a council drinks reception at the Lambeth stand in the pavilion.
In a webpage publicising its presence, the council says that, “at a time of fantastic opportunity for the borough”, it welcomes conversations at MIPIM with potential partners “interested in shaping this time of change, to bring inclusive and sustainable growth that will benefit all our residents and business communities”.
A council spokesman said: “Attendance at MIPIM gives Lambeth council the opportunity to showcase the borough, articulate its inward investment proposition, and communicate the council’s vision for inclusive growth and development that helps deliver benefits for Lambeth residents.
“The Future Lambeth plan recognises that supporting inward investment and the growth of our local economy and business rate tax base will be vital to generate the resources we need to run services and invest in our neighbourhoods.”
