The Housing Delivery Conference: Accelerating Building Capability Across the Sector


Housing Delivery Conference

The Government has committed to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020’s.



Numerous barriers for local authorities, developers and other key stakeholders exist to achieving this target, including, a restrictive planning system, land being locked from developers and low long-term productivity levels in the construction industry.


Welcoming planning and housing professionals from across the UK, explore first-hand what solutions are being put in place to get around these challenges to accelerate delivery. Our expert speakers will explore the latest policy developments, strategies, funding and technologies being deployed across the sector.
