THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely conference will discuss the next steps for housing policy in London.
It will be an opportunity to discuss the initial implementation of the Mayor of London’s Draft Housing Strategy - which seeks to develop a new ‘London Model’ for renting and diversify the homebuilding industry, and establishes a £250m Land Fund for buying and preparing land for new and affordable housing - as well as further action that might be taken in this area going forward.
Delegates will also assess what more might be done to increase the amount of affordable housing coming through the planning system - focusing on key measures from the London Plan.
Further planned sessions will assess the likely impact of developments in national housing policy on London as a new Housing Minister is appointed - looking at priorities from the Social Housing Green Paper, expected to be published shortly; key themes emerging from the Grenfell Tower Inquiry; and the potential impact of the Tenants Fees Bill currently progressing through Parliament, which seeks to ban letting fees paid by tenants and to cap deposits.
