Business are being invited to attend an event that will hear about two ongoing initiatives that will drive forward economic growth in Bradford and West Yorkshire.
Bradford Property Forum will meet on Tuesday 12 March and hear from two speakers. Keyland Developments will present on their plans to create a multi-purpose commercial and residential scheme on a 30-acre site around Esholt. Andy Davidson, currently seconded from Yorkshire Bank to the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, will talk about his role as business engagement adviser to the regional organisation and how the concept can transform our region’s economy.
These two initiatives, along with several others currently underway, will provide new business opportunities for many firms in West Yorkshire. See details below.

Yorkshire Bank’s Andy Davidson was seconded to the Northern Powerhouse Partnership – one of the main drivers behind the concept – in July 2018. Andy will tell us what’s happened since then, what plans are in place to ensure that this is not just a pipe-dream and that it really can change things for our local economies and the businesses within it.
Keyland Developments will also present on their plans to transform 30-plus acres of land at Esholt into a modern setting in which we can live, work and play. This scheme will change the local landscape and help drive forward the local economy.
The event will be hosted by Bradford Property Forum’s Marianne McCallum, and include an informative Q&A session.
Parking: On-street parking is available and there is a pay-and-display park at the top of Burnett Street.
