With the Government’s vision for the Oxford to Cambridge Arc set to be announced this month, EG and Bidwells have come together to discuss what this means for the Ox Cam Arc region and the opportunities it presents.
As the science & technology sector evolves, so too must its real estate. The utilisation of AI, robotics and cloud-based research data is changing the way scientists work and the spaces they occupy. Demand and pace of start-ups and spin-outs is rapidly changing the market.
With MHCLG set to launch plans for the much anticipated Arc Spatial Framework what does the development industry and local leaders expect to see in the framework and how can government ensure that it is a success?
The Arc is home to world-leading Science & Tech companies. But how can we ensure they attract the best talent, from top universities, to enable this sector to flourish? And can we provide the development and infrastructure needed to retain them?
Under the microscope: Booming Science and Tech clusters
Over the last 12 months, our research has built up a unique database of science and tech businesses and the floorspace they occupy across the clusters, which tells a myriad of stories about future advances.
With central Government proposing an Arc-wide spatial strategy and four development corporations for the Arc, is MHCLG now striking the right balance with local policy-making to Build, Build, Build at the pace required?
Unleashing the Arc: Is the green belt choking green economic growth?
While the Government is planning for large-scale infrastructure and economic growth in the Ox- Cam Arc, the Wildlife Trust is promoting it’s bold green vision for the region. We will discussed how we can create a regional ‘green infrastructure plan’.
