A lack of affordable homes is often seen as a simple matter of supply and demand, with the planning profession often blamed for rationing access to land. Housing planning permissions are now at record levels, but the number of homes built is still well below its annual 300,000 target. This conference will explore the question of housing supply, reflecting on definitions of need and affordability, quality, industry responsiveness and the role of viability.

Confirmed speakers and topics are;

  • Justin Gartland, Executive Chairman, Lichfields - Housing delivery and Local Plans: a regional overview’
  • Neil Graham, Homes England Homes England’s role supporting the delivery of land for new homes
  • Kathryn Gare, Land Manager, Yorkshire Housing Land supply and affordable housing
  • Murray Lloyd, Consultant, Development viability and affordable homes
  • Mark Denton, Director of Resources and Housing, Leeds City Council - Council housing growth
  • Brodie Clark, Walton Neighbourhood Plan, Local support for housing allocations
