IAB Patrons dinner

Birmingham planning boss briefs business chiefs at patrons’ dinner

The IAB held its second patrons’ dinner of the year at Hotel du Vin. Guest speaker was Waheed Nazir, director of planning and regeneration at Birmingham City Council. He outlined how the city will meet a huge number of challenges in the years ahead – including housing an estimated 150,000 additional residents and developing 407 hectares of land for new jobs. As part of this a number of areas, collectively the Birmingham City Centre Enterprise Zone, will be transformed, he added. The dinner was sponsored by Hotel du Vin and Malmaison.
