Sitematch London 2016 details revealed
Fri 18th September 2015, 1:15 pm
Details have been revealed for the next Sitematch London event, which brings together local authorities and private sector delegates to discuss how best to spur development activity across the capital.
The event takes place at Altitude 360, Millbank Tower, London, on 10 February 2016.
The concept was devised by 3Fox International in partnership with Ealing Council in 2011, as a way of setting up quick-fire “speed-dating” meetings between developers and land disposal teams at London’s local authorities to discuss opportunities for development. The event has taken place annually since then, at London venues such as City Hall and most recently, The Shard, in February this year (2015). This saw 33 councils and other public sector landowners — including the Ministry of Justice and Transport for London — take the opportunity to meet potential private sector partners through a series of “speed-dating”-style meetings lasting 15 minutes.
There were 384 pre-booked meetings, as well as many more impromptu meetings on the day, where developers discussed how to collaborate with the public sector in bringing sites forward to deliver growth and regeneration.
In attendance was The Shard’s developer, Irvine Sellar, of the Sellar Property Group. He addressed delegates: "I truly believe by working together we can deliver the needs for Greater London and beyond, while at the same time satisfying the aspirations of our citizens, through more housing, better infrastructure and public buildings; against the framework of attractive and necessary commercial development."
