Election 2015: Building a Better Britain - The Plymouth Debate
  • Devonport Lecture Theatre, Portland Square Building, Plymouth University

Save event

The 2015 General Election is set to be close with wide-ranging challenges for the next government.

Construction, housing, infrastructure, planning are key areas that can help the economy grow, and make places and spaces better for living, working, playing, and doing business.

Connecting people and business relies on good infrastructure; people need good quallity and affordable housing; businesses need high quality and sustainable developments; construction projects account for over 6% of GDP.

What will the next government do to support and grow the construction industry?

Hosted by a local media presenter, we have asked candidates from the main parties to debate the issues at this Election Debate targeted at issues around construction, housing, infrastructure and planning.

The Panel

  • Alison Seabeck MP/parliamentary candidate, Labour (Plymouth Moor View)
  • Gary Streeter MP/parliamentary candidate, Conservative (South West Devon) 
  • Penny Mills, parliamentary candidate, UKIP (Plymouth Moor View)

This FREE evening event commences with drinks and nibbles and networking, followed by the debate and questions from the floor. Join us at this high profile event, place your question in advance or on the day, and enjoy an invaluable networking opportunity.
