Affordable housing: policy and provision - London

Thursday, 18 October 2018 at 9:30AM - 4:30PM
Etc venues, Bishopsgate Court, 4-12 Norton Folgate, London E1 6DQ, UK
RTPI Training

Programme description

This Briefing will explore the complex situation we are in regarding our housing provision. The Government has given a clear goalpost for housing delivery in England – how will we build 1.5 million homes by 2022, including at least 10% affordable homes? How will the new housing need assessment and delivery test enable growth? Come along and hear some solutions.


Through a combination of input from expert speakers and discussion, you will:

  • Be up to date on affordable housing policies and learn about practical delivery mechanisms
  • Understand what needs to be in place to meet the ambitious housing delivery target
  • Gain insight on what this means for planners. How many planning permissions will need to be in place?
  • Hear about what infrastructure is needed to support this growth.
  • Consider the five-year land supply, what are the issues and implications for delivering affordable housing?
