As councils increasingly face housing issues, from shortages of affordable homes for people to buy, to social homes for affordable rent, we ask what solutions are available to place local authorities at the heart of housing solutions?
This seminar will explore different delivery models to enable councils to meet local housing needs such as:-
• Wholly owned local authority housing companies
• Joint ventures and special purpose vehicles
• Shared developments between local councils, developers and finance providers
• Tackling empty homes
• Direct local authority new build properties
• How a local authority can become a ‘private sector landlord’?
This seminar provides a high level strategic opportunity for local authority, ALMOs / Social Landlords to look at new housing developments and to hear about innovative approaches to delivering new homes for local people.
It also provides an opportunity to learn from legal and housing / planning experts and hear directly from the TCPA about housing policy developments. This seminar is suited to directors, senior managers / heads of service, commercial development managers and property and asset managers and will be of particular interest for elected members with housing, communities and neighbourhoods responsibilities.
