Development Partnership Forum for the south & west of England: Supply & Regeneration

14 August 2018

 

Development-Partnership-Forum-Estate-Regeneration-Housing-Supply-South-and-West

 

The major focus of this inaugural Development Partnership Forum for the south and west of England will be on new initiatives and latest policy from government, developing quality homes, diversifying housing supply and estate regeneration. This Forum will be relevant to all councils and housing associations together with partnering contractors. Wider diversity of housing supply is critical as housing continues to be a major political and social issue.

 

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 Partnership Forum will take place on Friday 5 October from 9:30 - 13:00 at Wiltshire Council Chamber, Monkton Park, Chippenham SN15 1ER

 

If you would like to attend, please email Andrew Burke. The Forum is extremely popular and it is best to book early. 

 

The Housing Forum is grateful to Capsticks for sponsoring this Development Partnership Forum.
