Lee Arnell

Executive Regeneration Manager, Leeds City Council
YEP Leeds

In my role at Leeds City Council, I have a portfolio responsibility for Strategic Growth. To help to deliver the city’s inclusive growth aspirations, I lead on regeneration and co-ordinated place based input for Leeds City Centre and the city’s major infrastructure schemes. This is fun varied and includes everything from a Grade I listed Egyptian Temple to major new transport infrastructure to place solutions for the creative sectors.

I am passionate about places, spaces, innovation, equality and inclusion, community engagement, and delivering transformation through cross sector collaboration.

In my spare time, I like to run with Chapel Allerton Runners, going to gigs and consuming culture and (most!) sports
