West Anglia Taskforce

Hertfordshire LEP, South East LEP and London Stansted Cambridge Consortium are hosting a business breakfast on Monday 23 May. This event is an opportunity:

To learn more about the plans for improving the line which will also enable Stansted Airport to grow to its planned capacity and stimulate investment and development in a corridor with huge untapped potential.

• Help inform the West Anglia Taskforce which will put the business case for investment to Government this summer.

The taskforce, which is led by Rt. Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst MP for Saffron Walden is tasked with assessing how rail connections to Cambridge and Stansted from Liverpool Street and Stratford can be improved and how investment in the line will help to spur the delivery of thousands of new homes and jobs, as well as support aspirations for the corridor to become a focus for globally important technology and bioscience-led economic growth in the “Golden Triangle” of London-Cambridge-Oxford.

If we are basing our case for investment in this line on the presumption that it will be “good for UK plc” we need a strong voice from business leaders to support this case.

We are hosting this business-focused workshop to answer the question:

“How does investment in the West Anglia Mainline support sustainable growth in Hertfordshire and the South East?”

When: Monday 23 May, 9.30am-11.30am
Where: The Gallery, Rhodes Arts Complex,
1- 3 South Road, Bishop's Stortford, Herts, CM23 3JG
