Emma Cariaga, OxCam Arc Chair, joins 'Science Cities' in Cambridge
We are delighted that Emma Cariaga, a development and regeneration expert who is on the executive committee of British Land and who was recently appointed Chair of the government's expert advisory panel supporting the growth of the Oxford Cambridge Arc, will be speaking at our October 'Science Cities' forum in Cambridge.
Focussing on the Bedford to Cambridge area, the expert advisory panel - which reports directly to the Minister of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government and also to the Department for Transport, will advise on issues ranging from design and sustainability to delivery and investment models.
Emma is Joint Head of Canada Water Development and Head of Residential at British Land. Canada Water is a fifty-three acre development project in Central London. She joined the Executive Committee of British Land in 2019.
She is also a Non-Executive Director of Assura plc, a Non-Executive Director of TEDI-London, a higher education provider for future engineers founded by Arizona State University, King's College London and UNSW Sydney.
Emma joined British Land in 2014 from Landsec where she delivered a number of Central London developments as well as overseeing their strategic land portfolio. Prior to this, Emma held development and land management roles at Barratt and Crest Nicholson.
She will be delivering the opening address at our 'Science Cities and the Arc' forum at Newnham College Cambridge and will then join our first panel discussing best practice in joined-up planning of infrastructure, jobs and housing.
Other contributors to the 'Science Cities' Cambridge forum include Anna Strongman, Chief Executive of Oxford University Development, Professor Lynette Ryals, Chief Executive of MK:U (the new university joint venture between Milton Keynes Council and Cranfield University), and Dr David Hardman, Managing Director of Bruntwood SciTech Birmingham.
The first of three government digital public consultations, that will guide the spatial framework for the Oxford Cambridge Arc, is currently open.
