Join us at on 12 February to learn about the latest thinking on housing, at the headquarters of the Chartered Institute for Housing in central London.
Housing delivery is attracting a great deal of political interest in the run up to the 2015 General Election. The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) research into the use of planning obligations studies the factors which affect the performance of planning obligations and emerging alternatives in six contrasting housing areas in England.
Sue Brownill of Oxford Brookes University, who led the research for JRF, will outline the findings and explore the issues arising.
The Lyons Review recently published its Report ‘Mobilising across the nation to build the homes our children need’. Malcolm Sharp MRTPI was one of the Lyons Review Commissioners and he will outline the Report’s recommendations and will be able to explain the thinking behind them.
The RTPI has recently published two very relevant Policy Papers with a series of recommendations for decision-makers. Delivering Large Scale Housing: Unlocking Schemes and Sites to Help Meet the UK’s Housing Needs, was developed around six roundtables that were held in England and Scotland, as well as a call for evidence. Strategic Planning: Beyond “Cooperation” looks at the experience in England prior to a UK Paper being published next month.
Joe Kilroy is a Policy Officer for the RTPI and he will use these papers to outline the RTPI position on housing delivery.
This event is free, but it is necessary to register. Further information available via the RTPI website.
