The keynote speakers are some of the most respected and renowned within the industry from all corners of the globe, and this year features Abigail Johnson, of Mick George Ltd, one of the sectors leading suppliers.
Johnson will be leading a discussion on operator challenges and opportunities within the brownfield development market, informing how to turn such land types, into build ready plots quickly and efficiently, with the businesses safe, robust, deliverable and compliant provisions
Abigail Johnson, Head of Waste at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘With what is happening in the wider economic environment, and the implications of Brexit still somewhat unclear, Brownfield development could be a viable solution to many of the issues that are currently being discussed.‘’
Johnson continued: ‘’Cleary there are going to be changes in the Agricultural world, due to abolishment of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), for which land assets could be seen as an alternative funding opportunity. Likewise, with the Government tasked with delivering 200,000 new homes a year until 2020, and the market for private developers fairly buoyant, Brownfields locations are likely to become far more conventional than many would give credit.’’
