THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Delegates at this conference will assess the future for social housing policy in England.
It takes place in light of measures unveiled in the Budget which aim to increase the supply of new homes - including an increase to the Housing Infrastructure Fund, the establishment of a Land Assembly Fund, and lifting the housing revenue account borrowing cap for local authorities ‘in high need’.
This seminar also follows the announcement of a Government green paper on social housing in England which will review key issues, including the quality of social homes, service management, the rights of tenants, homelessness, and the role for social housing in supporting communities and local economies.
Further sessions focus on proposed changes to planning policy, the impact of the Home Building Fund for smaller building firms, and potential implications of The Mayor of London’s Draft Housing Strategy for social housing in the Capital.
In the context of the ongoing inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire, attendees will also assess what more can be done to improve standards and the safety of social housing, as well as the challenges for meeting the housing requirements of vulnerable groups and key issues for housing associations following their reclassification as private organisations.
