In Manchester City Centre, the demand for residential space is outstripping supply. With excellent universities, a strong private sector and thriving arts and cultural scene, its pulling power is undiminished, despite the capacity limitations. Where can residents go?

At the 2024 Place Management Conference ‘We Need to Talk About Housing!’, delegates will hear the story of Stretford in Greater Manchester, and how the need for more residential space has led to a huge regeneration scheme in the town centre bringing together great retail and residential. The scheme highlights the opportunities for many commuter towns as part of a broader regional strategy for growth.

ATCM can confirm that Chris Roberts, Chief Development Officer of Bruntwood, will talk about the scheme and what policies are needed to support more viable regeneration across the UK.

The 2024 Place Management Conference will explore the future of UK and Irish town and city centres in the context of more housing. We will ask crucial questions on how we get the right balance between the two, what this shift means for the provision for place management services and the impact on the funding models we rely on.

The 2024 Place Management Conference will explore the topic of high street homes in a level of detail not previously explored at ATCM. Tickets are on sale now. Book early to avoid disappointment. For those wanting to pay via invoice and not via credit card, contact Karen Shields at
