The Southern Powerhouse

Coffin Mew commissioned a major report to look at the challenges and opportunities facing the South as a region in establishing itself as, what could be described as, the Southern Powerhouse.

The report consists of a number of interviews with key people in the region – from chief executives of property development companies, property investors as well as those heading up the Local Enterprise Partnerships. 

The interviews cover an extensive array of topics from:

  • Infrastructure needs
  • 5G fibre rollout opportunities
  • The planning system and why and how it needs to evolve
  • How to align development and the environmental challenges
  • The significant assets and opportunities in the South Region
  • Plus much more

We are delighted to bring this range of interviews with their vital insights and perspectives to you and to champion the push for the region to receive more recognition for all that it currently is and can be looking forward to support the growth and development of the country.

The South is a region with much going for it. From skills and infrastructure to the development of a new breed of entrepreneurs and the emergence of new technology plus much much more.

The report considers the implications and the necessity to sustain, develop and invest in what could be described as the Southern Powerhouse.
