13 October 2018

Development-Partnership-Forum-Developing-Complex-Sites

 

 

 

After a year of major announcements on housing supply and build quality, the final Development Partnership Forum in 2018 will examine the new opportunities available to the sector. 

 

This Forum will explore how larger housing associations have a significant role to play through Strategic Partnerships with Homes England. In addition, selected case studies will demonstrate how more local councils are finding ways to form innovative partnerships to develop smaller sites that meet local demand and overcome the challenges of developing complex sites.

 

This Forum will take place on Friday 23 November from 9:00 - 12:30 at The Housing Forum Offices, 6 Floor, 1 Minster Court, London EC3R 7AA

 

The Forum is extremely popular and it is best to book early.

About Development Partnership Forums


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.

 

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