Policy priorities for housing in England - planning, delivery and the impact of Brexit

Friday, 12th May 2017

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



With the Neighbourhood Planning Bill currently progressing through Parliament, this conference will be a timely opportunity to assess next steps for housing policy.

Delegates will discuss how post-Brexit market conditions will impact on investment, buyer demand and property prices, as well as implications for Government plans to increase home ownership on the rented housing sector and social housing services.

Further sessions focus on how measures outlined in the Housing and Planning Act 2016, such as the voluntary Right to Buy agreement with housing associations, the commitment to tackling rogue landlords and speeding up the planning process, will affect the sector long term.
