In September a report from the Housing, Communities and Local Government (HCLG) Committee concluded that extra funding for infrastructure and affordable housing could be raised by wide-ranging reforms. The government remains committed to its ambitious target of building 300,000 homes a year, but fears have been raised that if there isn’t enough incentive in the system for landowners to offer potential sites up for development, the ‘housing crisis’ won’t be addressed.
This event will cover the very latest thinking on the issue. Topics likely to come up include compulsory purchase and how much land values can vary depending on geography and Local Plans. Speakers will include: Luke Murphy, Associate Director for Energy, Climate, Housing and Infrastructure at the Institute for Public Policy Research; David Jones, Partner in charge of Development and Land Sales for Robinson & Hall and a speaker from Wates Developments, among others.
The evening will conclude with a light buffet supper.
In lieu of an event fee we will be accepting donations to the CLA Charitable Trust on the night.
