Co-chaired by Lord Blunkett and Lord Eric Pickles, The Parliamentary Review is a bastion of political insight which serves as an indispensable guide to industry best practice. This analysis is communicated across a variety of editions, each of which covers a single UK policy sector; these include but are not limited to finance, education, environment, healthcare, manufacturing and technology.
Network Space is a commercial property development, investment and management company based in the North West. Focused on the industrial property sector, it summarises itself as providing “better places for business”. Founded by the father of current CEO Richard Ainscough in 1982, it has since created or modernised over ten million square feet of industrial and other employment space in over 150 locations. Richard tells The Parliamentary Review more.
'In over 35 years, we have evolved. In the early years the business focused mainly on buying former factory sites and converting them into affordable multi-let industrial estates, then we started to build new developments in the mid-1990s. This continued until 2008 and the crash. I joined the accounts team in 2009 with a mandate to shore up our cost base and by the time I took over the investment and management operation in 2012, we were generating sufficient free cash to begin investing in a recovering market.'
