One group of knowledge-intensive neighbours. One powerful plan to compete.
In the 2017 Budget, the Chancellor announced enthusiastic Government support for creating a new economic growth corridor between Cambridge and Oxford, calling it the “UK’s Silicon Valley”.
One year later, Bidwells is partnering with leading property magazine EG and rural title Farmers Weekly to examine progress on delivering this ‘locally-led’ Government ambition to spread the high economic growth seen in Cambridge, Oxford and Milton Keynes throughout the Corridor.
Central government officials, local partners, university leaders and science and technology sector leaders will meet leading property industry figures and landowners to identify the opportunities emerging from this ambitious Government vision for a £250billion economy and one million new homes by 2050.
