THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This conference will be an opportunity to assess the future for social and affordable housing policy in England.


Delegates will discuss the implementation of the Government’s Housing White Paper: Fixing our broken housing market, which includes changes to planning policy, a £3bn fund for smaller building firms, and the creation of a stand-alone regulator for social housing.


In the context of the ongoing inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire, delegates will also discuss the standards and safety of social housing.


Further sessions will focus on the challenges for meeting the housing requirements of vulnerable groups, priorities for housing in devolved areas in England and the potential implications of Brexit on the supply of labour and materials needed to build new homes.
