Pickles to make Sitematch address

Fri 31st October 2014, 2:26 pm

Secretary of state Eric Pickles has been announced as the keynote speaker at Sitematch London.

The event takes place on 10 February 2015 at The Shard, London Bridge, and will see senior officers and members from local authorities and other public sector landowners hold "speed dating" style meetings with developers and investors to discuss development opportunities.

This is the sixth Sitematch event since the initiative's inception by organiser 3Fox International in 2012.

In November 2013, participants were offered the chance to meet with government departments at The Treasury, where Pickles made a video address, saying the event had the potential to contribute towards creating thousands of new homes. The next event will be the first that Pickles has attended in person.

Over 30 local public sector organisations are already confirmed for the event, including a number of south coast councils attending for the first time as special guests.
