About the Conference: The Scottish Rural and Islands Housing Conference covers a range of topical issues concerning rural housing and communities in Scotland. As ever, the conference aims to update and inform delegates of the changes and initiatives that are taking place and to provide an opportunity for frank and open debate.
The theme of this year's conference is Building Rural Communities and delegates will hear sessions on the new development environment and a Scandanavian Scotland? The conference will close with a lively panel debate on the key challenges affecting rural development. As always workshops will provide a more practical and in-depth look at issues including Rural Housing Initiative, Minimum Income Standard and Procurement.
The pre-conference RIHAF meeting will take place on Wednesday 26 October, along with the Study Tour hosted by Scottish Borders Housing Network - Berwickshire Housing Association, Eildon Group, Scottish Borders Houding Assoiciation & Waverley Housing.
RIHAF would like to thank the conference sponsors, Edison Energy, Sunamp and Travis Perkins for their support which helps keep delegate costs low, making this conference one of the best value events in the sector.
