The assembled guests at Derby's Embassy event in London heard from Leader of Derby City Council, Cllr Chris Poulter at his first Embassy event since taking over the leadership role.
Cllr Poulter outlined some of his priorities for Derby, including continuous momentum in the development of the city centre, focusing on key regeneration sites in the city centre, an innovation campus at Infinity Park Derby and enhanced connectivity within the city and to East Midlands Airport.
He reaffirmed that the City Council would ensure a smooth path for developers.
Also high on his list was improving the Council’s communication channels and representation for the benefit of the city and its people across political parties.
