Development Partnership Forum: Housing Supply & Estate Regeneration

16 May 2018


Housing Supply and Estate Regeneration


Wider diversity of housing supply is critical as housing continues to be a major political and social issue. This Development Partnership Forum will be relevant to all councils and housing associations together with partnering contractors with a major focus on Estate Regeneration and developing additional homes and for those setting up new housing companies.



The Development Partnership Forum is an initiative from The Housing Forum to bring government and industry together to share best practice and support new entrants into housing development. It is a highly relevant initiative as government signals a range of measures to accelerate and increase house building.


The Forums are held on a quarterly basis to give a platform for government, agencies and the industry to better understand emerging policy, the development life cycle, commercial and construction considerations.


The Development Partership Forum will take place on Friday 8 June from 9:00 - 13:00 at 6 Floor, 1 Minster Court, Mincing Lane, London, EC3R 7AA.


If you would like to attend, please email Andrew Burke to register for the Development Partnership Forum. Spaces are limited.
