Council-Led Housing Forum – Future of council-led housing

 Registration is closed for this event

During the last few years we have seen a growth in local authority housing development teams and their programmes. London boroughs have set ambitious long-term targets and the sector is creating its own brand of  development. Confidence in the sector is growing, it is developing its own expertise and we can expect to see new initiatives bringing new talent into council teams. This event will look at the sectors direction of travel and how that might develop.

This event marks three years since Future of London launched the Council-led Housing Forum to support London local authorities developing new homes for Londoners. The Forum was first sponsored by the GLA who actively encouraged its development, followed by three sponsors, Potter Raper Ltd, Red Loft and BPTW architects, who have generously given funding, time and expertise.

This session of the Council-Led Housing Forum is for everyone interested in the future delivery of council-led housing development in London. It will include presentations from those leading council delivery as well as partners in the process.

This session will offer attendees:

  • Insight into council-led housing development
  • An opportunity to hear from leaders in the sector
  • An exploration of the direction of travel for the sector
  • The potential for cross borough working and networking

When: Tuesday 19 October, 9:00 to 10:45 am
