Derby has long understood the importance of partnership - just think Rolls and Royce or Clough and Taylor.
And over the past decade, that spirit of co-operation, between the public and private sectors, has helped deliver more than £3bn investment into our city.
Derby Renaissance Board is a forum where those committed to helping drive local economic growth can meet, exchange ideas and agree actions to further that ambition.
City regeneration is not easy. It’s a competitive, often problematic business. It requires a long-term view, dedication and some nerve. But Derby already has a track record of delivery and a development master plan that shows its appetite to do much more.
The renaissance board will guide, support and help give confidence to business and government so that they are convinced that an investment in Derby is a sound investment.
