This talk will discuss the unlocking of infrastructure to facilitate development. With HIF as the new kid on the block proving a great success, alongside the devolution agenda, funding is percolating to the ground through a variety of different methods. This session will discuss the different approaches to attracting funding and delivering infrastructure to enable development.


  • Funding sources - HIF and other funds that are available and how they can be used to unlock development
  • Consenting strategies upon receipt of HIF or other funding
  • Getting hold of the HIF: negotiations and agreements required to facilitate obtaining the monies you have won
  • Spending the HIF: land issues and value captures

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand what the HIF (Housing Infrastructure Fund) is and how it can be used to deliver housing
  • Understand how infrastructure can be used to deliver housing
  • Learn about the various funding sources available to enable the delivery of infrastructure and housing

Core CPD Framework:

  • Infrastructure Planning & Economic Development
  • Housing
