Investment and Management Models for Town and City Centres

An audience with Jim McMahon MP, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Town Centres and Shadow Minister for Local Government and Devolution


Just over a decade ago, the UK entered a financial storm. The recession completely transformed the way we invest in our towns and cities with purse strings being tightened many sectors. A challenging environment was heightened as austerity coincided with the unrelenting growth of digital technology, transforming business practices and consumer behaviour.

The past few years have seen the development of innovative new models to increase the flow of capital back into town centres. There is no doubting how important this is. In fact, in our membership survey last year, inward investment emerged as top of a list of concerns for the town and city management industry.

On the 20th April, in Oldham town centre, ATCM is delighted to be joined by Jim McMahon MP, Shadow Minister for Local Government and Devolution, and Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Town Centres, to discuss investment models for town and city centres. Delegates will be able to have explore a number of topics including:

  • Property Owner BIDs
  • Mayoral Investment in Town Centres
  • Business Rates Reform
  • Update on Business Rates Retention
  • A new accreditation for inward investment

This meeting will be chaired by ATCM’s Acting Chief Executive Ojay McDonald. Please contact membership@atcm.org if you would like to attend.
