Accelerating homebuilding: how the public sector can deliver more homes, more efficiently

 Registration is closed for this event

As we come out of lockdown housebuilding is seen as a cornerstone for economic recovery. Pressure is on to make up for lost time. We’ll look at the market opportunities created by pandemic change to accelerate housing delivery.

This webinar will explore how public sector homebuilders are responding to the pandemic, and what Local Authorities, Housing Associations and the GLA have learnt from the crisis. Looking ahead to recovery, it will discuss the opportunities for public sector to deliver more homes, more efficiently – and with better quality.  

This event is aimed at local authority and housing association staff at all levels plus the wider development community. There are currently no other forums looking at the local authority and housing association collaboration model for recovery, making the event unique.

Key questions we’ll explore:

  • How can joint working and better collaboration between boroughs and housing associations boost capacity across the sector, and improve the planning and delivery of homes?
  • What are the financial levers available for accelerating delivery?
  • As the land market slows is there an opportunity for the public sector to think and act differently?
