Location: St Martin in the Fields
Less than a week before the 2016 Budget, this timely conference will explore the options for building the large amounts of housing we need, including innovative new partnerships and tenures, and will ask: will the Housing & Planning Bill help or hinder the delivery of new homes?
Lord Matthew Taylor of Goss Moor, whose ideas have been listened to by the last three governments and are influencing current housing policy, will set out his proposal for Garden Villages, in the first of the keynote presentations.
In the second keynote, Victoria Hills, Chief Executive of Old Oak Common and Park Royal Development Corporation, will explain her organisation’s plans for transforming this huge area of run-down land in north west London into an attractive and vibrant place to live.
Other speakers from across the public and private sectors will consider urban renewal and regeneration in our existing towns and cities, the potential for building new Garden Cities, and the impact of the Housing & Planning Bill.
