Over 140 members joined us on the Terrace Pavilion of the House of Commons for our Parliamentary Reception yesterday.

For this year’s event, we were proud to partner with Sheffield Property Association as part of our on-going campaign for closer partnerships between London and the UK’s city regions on our mutual aspirations, including devolution  and infrastructure investment. The reception was the front page story of The Sheffield Star, in an article celebrating the power of collaboration between UK cities. You can read the article here.  David Ainsworth, President of CPA, commented on the “genuine friendship” forged between the Sheffield Property Association and the London Property Alliance.
