Crash and Brum in Cannes

  • Comment

Best media quotation of the MIPIM week appeared in the Birmingham Post and came from Glenn Howells, Midlands champion from Stourbridge

‘If this plane crashed in the Alps,’ he declared of a MIPIM-bound flight, ‘it would set the regeneration of Birmingham back by at least two weeks.’

The city was well represented at the show, not least by council leader Mike Whitby, who is working on new initiatives with, among others, Lance Taylor of cost consultant Rider Levett Bucknall. Expect movement on key central sites, currently in split ownerships, in the near future.
