Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will be a timely opportunity to assess policy priorities for housing in London and South East England.


With the Mayor setting out plans for 90,000 new, affordable homes to rent or buy in the Capital by 2021, delegates will consider next steps for ensuring the supply of new homes and regenerating existing estates.


There will also be discussion on the impact of national policy on housing in London and the South East following the introduction of a Draft Tenants' Fees Bill and commitment to promoting fairness and transparency in the housing market in the Queen’s Speech.


Further sessions focus on key issues in the private rented sector, and the future for social housing, with a public inquiry in to the Grenfell Tower tragedy ordered by the Prime Minister.
