Ealing makes presence felt at MIPIM

Thu 7 March 2013, 3:21 pm

A four-strong team from Ealing Council is gearing up to profile and showcase the borough's development opportunities at next week's MIPIM property fair in France - funded entirely by the private sector.

MIPIM, staged annually in Cannes since 1990, brings together the world’s most influential property-market players, and is a showcase for attracting interest in development.

In recent years, it's been attended by more than 300 authorities from some 80-plus countries, all of them keen to progress their development opportunities.

Ealing’s MIPIM team comprises council leader Julian Bell, executive director of regeneration and housing Pat Hayes, director of built environment Noel Rutherford and assistant director of regeneration and planning policy Lucy Taylor.

Their presence is at no cost to taxpayers, as it will be funded by a private-sector delegation facilitated by Ealing in London publishers, 3 Fox International.

Taylor said the event was an opportunity to maintain Ealing’s profile and stress the scale of development opportunities available.

“This year, we’ll certainly be publicising the message that we’ve got five Crossrail stations coming, and helping people to understand the change that will bring to Ealing Broadway and Southall,” she said.

Taylor added that the delegation would also be promoting new retail opportunities planned at Ealing Broadway, including the Arcadia Centre.

MIPIM runs from 12 to 15 March.
