This morning over 100 people heard about the exciting opportunities and challenges facing the Bradford district over the coming year.

The breakfast event, on Tuesday 10 July at Bradford's City Hall, was the chance for business leaders and key partners in the city and district to hear about the plans to move Bradford district forward in the next 12 months.

Bradford Council Leader Coun Susan Hinchcliffe updated on what has been achieved in the district in the last year including Barclays awarding the district ‘the best place to start a high growth business’, the creation of an education covenant with 5,000 businesses signed up, being the fourth most improved area for education and being praised by the Care Quality Commission for partnership working.

She also spoke about how the district will build on these achievements in the next year including delivering the Bradford Economic Strategy, building on partnership working with the health sector and making the most of the Education Opportunity Area.

As well as how the district can achieve its ambitions and rise to the challenges by working with local communities and businesses.

Other speakers outlined their vision for the future in education, active communities, healthy communities, culture, economic prospects and economic growth.

There was the opportunity to take part in discussions about the district's priorities and network with partners, colleagues and friends.

Coun Susan Hinchcliffe, Leader of Bradford Council, said: "Over the last twelve months, there have been a great many achievements making our district a better place in which to learn, live and work.

“These achievements could not have been delivered without the excellent partnership working between public services and businesses, as well as communities demonstrating a shared passion for and commitment to the success of the whole district.

“Despite the challenges and on-going uncertainties of austerity, I am confident that we can build on the successes of the last year and continue to deliver progress in to 2019.”
