‘Northern Powerhouse’ is the phrase often used to describe the future of the north, but what does it mean exactly?
First introduced to the UK in 2014 by Chancellor George Osbourne, it has been used by the government to outline a proposal for boosting economic growth in the northern cities rebalancing the UK away from London and the South East.
Individually cities like Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool are strong but by working together, the Northern Powerhouse provides the opportunity to better connect the cities of the north to create a unified economic area.
Headquartered in Leeds with a strong presence across the north of England we are committed to supporting growth across this region and are passionate about enabling the success of the Northern Powerhouse.
Our people not only have the expertise to support the government’s proposals in practical terms they also have the knowledge and understanding to join the debate and give advice on key areas such as transport, infrastructure, education and the residential sector playing an influential role in the decision making process.
We are already engaged on a number of high profile projects in the north including:
