Event description

Description

The Smith Institute's research and that of the TCPA shows that councils are finding new and exciting ways of meeting local housing needs, including setting up local housing companies and new forms of joint ventures. A lot of the innovations are taking place in the regions, which is why we are holding a nationwide series of seminars (kindly supported by the Nationwide Foundation). We see the events as a opportunity to not only learn from each other, but to discuss the latest research and help shape the debate on councils building again.

Are we witnessing a step change in the delivery of affordable homes; what level and type of housing delivery are councils planning; are local housing companies the way forward and if so what can learn from experience so far; what can councils do to differently; will the HRA be subject to more reform; and what policy changes could be made to support the renaissance in council-built homes?

We will be addressing these and related questions at our second regional seminar in Exeter. Attendance is free and places are limited. Please join us and other housing and local government professionals and book your ticket now.

CONFIRMED CHAIR: Cllr Hannah Packham (Portfolio Member for Housing, Exeter City Council)

CONFIRMED SPEAKERS: Paul Hackett (Director, the Smith Institute), Henry Smith (Projects and Policy Manager, the TCPA ) plus Emma Osmundsen, Shadow Director (Development) & Client Lead (Build)
