Housing delivery in a time of localism & austerity?

An event looking at the delivery of the right amount of housing in the right places

Monday, 26 November 2012 at 1:30PM - 4:00PM
University of Gloucestershire Francis Close Hall Campus, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire GL50 4AZ, UK
Free for Network Members
RTPI-CIH Planning for Housing Network

This event will hear from two presenters about their experience of housing delivery - and then we will open up to debate to draw upon the shared experience of all those attending. The primary aim will be to provoke thoughts on the better delivery of the good quality housing that is needed.

Martin Willey, a past President of the RTPI, will outline the lessons from 7 years of the South West Housing Initiative which has been bringing the housing industry and the professions together with great effect to deliver housing. James Derounian, Principal Lecturer in Community Development & Local Governance at the University of Gloucestershire and a Guardian Local Government Network contributor, will look at the experience of progress with Neighbourhood Plans and in particular their potential to deliver more housing. He is involved with the development of a Neighbourhood Plan for the area where he lives.
