Join fellow affordable housing developers from London and the South-east at the National Housing Federation’s London Development Conference & Exhibition to debate how the sector can work together to deliver the regeneration and development the city needs.
The London Development Conference & Exhibition returns at a critical time for housebuilders in the capital. As well as the ongoing Brexit debate and financial and political uncertainty, the affordable housing sector faces great challenges and opportunities as it strives to dramatically increase the number of affordable homes in London and the South-east.
The conference will take place on the 12th November at etc Venues Fenchurch Street in London and will bring together leading affordable housing developers in London, from non-profit to the private sector. The event will debate questions such as ‘Where will the funding come from to build at the scale required?’ ‘Is the sales market slowing? And if so, what does that mean for the cross-subsidy business model?’ ‘How do we tackle our construction and development skills shortages?’ ‘How can you ensure resident ballots are effective and worthwhile for both residents and developers?’ ‘2020 mayoral elections: who can offer the solutions to the housing crisis?’
Speakers include Nicholas Boys Smith, Interim Chair of Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission, Barbara Brownlee, Executive Director Growth, Planning and Housing at Westminster City Council, Abi Jacobs, Head of Strategic Partnerships at L&Q, Victoria Moffett, Head of Building and Fire Safety Programmes, National Housing Federation and Hanna Osundina, Development Manager, Balfour Beatty.
There will be various breakout sessions which will explore, for example, how to strike the right balance between high density and improved quality of life, debate how best to put residents at the heart of regeneration, discuss the green agenda: ensuring today’s builds are fit for the future and address how smaller and larger housing associations can work together to increase supply.
At the London Development Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to hear about all the latest developments in the sector, exchange fresh ideas and build relationships that matter. The event is aimed at key decision makers from housing associations, local authorities, architects and private developers.
