Description



New Anglia LEP Housing Conference: 11 July 2019

Working with the Housing and Finance Institute and the Suffolk Growth Programme Board

As you may be aware, our Building Growth Group has been active for the last three or so years and since its inception has been largely focussed on four key stakeholder objectives: housing, planning, skills and utilities.

We believe that now is the time to re-focus our thoughts around this agenda and as such we are hosting our first Housing Conference on 11 July 2019, 10.00 – 16.00 at Wherstead Park, Ipswich. The Conference is an important step in further bringing together the public and private sector around our collective ambition to deliver 140,000 new homes across Norfolk and Suffolk by 2036.

Working closely with the Housing and Finance Institute and Suffolk Design to shape the conference agenda, we have identified three key themes that we believe together define the housing challenge we face:

  • Quality: how do we ensure homes built are of a good quality to help improve quality of life and indeed other objectives such as health?

  • Quantity: how do we deliver 140,000 new homes of the right type, in the right place in Norfolk and Suffolk by 2036?

  • Affordability: how do we ensure that new homes are affordable for those who want to live and work in Norfolk and Suffolk?

Richard Bacon – MP for South Norfolk
Sarah Beale – CITB
