Housing Needs and Demand Assessments

A South East Scotland Chapter and Scottish Young Planners' Network Joint Event

Wednesday, 17 February 2016 at 6:00PM - 8:00PM
George Washington Browne Room, Central Library, 7-9 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG
RTPI Scotland

This event will cover the process of creating, developing and applying a housing need and demand assessment (HNDA) for planning purposes. HNDAs are enshrined in Scottish Planning Policy, providing the baseline to identify the scale of housing land required for emerging development plan strategies. It has been well documented in the press that Scotland is experiencing a “housing crisis”. This is an invaluable opportunity to learn more about how housing is planned for and delivered across Scotland.

An experienced and skilled range of planning professionals from both the public and private sectors will explain the work they do with HNDAs and give their views and provide insight into the system.

There will be tea/coffee and networking from 6pm to 6:30pm.

Speakers for the evening are:

  • Stuart Salter – Geddes Consulting
  • Tammy Adams – Homes for Scotland
  • Bill Lindsay – Fife Council
  • Ian Angus - SESplan

An open discussion and a question/answer session will be held at the end of the session. There will also be post-event drinks at the Villager (49-50 George IV Bridge, EH1 1EJ).

Free to all RTPI Members. Non-RTPI Members very welcome, with a £5 charge on arrival.

This event is kindly sponsored by Geddes Consulting, who will also be hosting drinks at The Villager Bar after the event.
