Event description

Description

By April 2019, the UK is set to withdraw from membership of the EU. On the frontline of societal and economic change, our towns and cities face uncertainty at a time of political turmoil in Westminster.

The shock result of a hung Parliament in June's General Election has greatly heightened this uncertainty with a lack of direction or clear strategy in the Brexit negotiations. ATCM has worked hard to inform members of what the opportunities and challenges will be for different types of urban economy, including coastal towns, former industrial towns, market towns and metropolitan cities. However, there is now a clear desire from our membership to go a step further and act to reduce this uncertainty by playing a proactive role in shaping the urban policy landscape once the UK departs from the EU. Responding to this desire, ATCM is launching ‘Pathway to Resilience’ a concerted effort to prepare our towns and cities for success whatever the outcome of the negotiations and impact of a new relationship with the EU.

Pathway to Resilience recognises that, whether we are in or outside the EU, whether we are inside or outside the Single Market, we could do much more to support our towns and cities through inward investment, cutting business costs, lowering barriers to entry for entrepreneurs, regeneration, boosting the tourism economy and enhancing quality of life. It is for ATCM, with its family of BIDs, town centre managers, economic development officers and Town Teams, to develop a pathway for policy-makers to follow to ensure our urban economies are resilient, regardless of the shifting global landscape.

Our first event, ‘Shaping the Post-Brexit Urban Economy’ will be a national, cross-sector conversation to inform ATCM’s policy positions in a number of key areas. It will be a mix of informative plenary sessions interspersed with roundtable discussions to construct a coherent plan for future-proofing the urban economy. This is your chance to influence public policy for the urban economy. Are you ready to get involved?
