GVA's David Mace urges “Mr Mayor, be bold and put Bristol on the map”

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - GVA's David Mace urges “Mr Mayor, be bold and put Bristol on the map”“With the election of Bristol’s first Mayor, there’s a huge opportunity to be grasped to put politics to one side and put the Open for Business sign firmly on the city’s gates.”

David Mace, regional senior director of property adviser GVA in Bristol, says this is the single most important message that the new Mayor can bring to the top of the agenda to promote and develop the economic strength of the city.

“Bristol has made great strides from those dark old days when developers and investors were simply shown the door. However there is still more that can be done in promoting the strengths of our city-wide region and our diverse economic base,” says David.

“We cannot forget that Bristol has to compete not only in a national but a global market where ‘he who shouts loudest wins’.

“To do this most effectively Mr Ferguson will need to forget about the artificial boundaries of the unitary authorities and be strong in his vision for the city region.

“I would urge Mr Ferguson to listen carefully to what business in Bristol has to say. Improvements in infrastructure, an integrated transport plan, together with a clear vision for growth that includes embracing inward investment should all be seen as priority.”
