Development Partnership Forums


The Development Partnership Forum is a new 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.


The Forums will always be topical, covering current issues and are very popular. You must register in advance to attend.  Please contact Events for further information on this well regarded event.



In the section below you can find downloadable resource packs from previous events. We hope that you find these informative and useful.  Please feel free to share with your colleagues.
