Leeds Property & Economic Forum

The aim of the Leeds Property and Economic Forum is to contribute positively and effectively to the future growth and development of the Leeds Metropolitan District. We do this through hosting regular events and steering group meetings, which involve networking, information sharing and discussion on property and economic initiatives.

Its key objectives are to identify the needs of the City of Leeds to make it a regional capital and a leading European City, and the Forum works closely with the Leeds City Council to provide a sector input to achieving this vision for Leeds. It also provides a sounding board for public sector infrastructure proposals and other major schemes brought forward in the city.
