Ready, steady… build!

WRITTEN BY Local Partnerships
POSTED ON 13th May 2016

House building is at the top of the political agenda, and many authorities are under extreme pressure to generate income and show what they are doing to alleviate housing shortages, and lack of affordable homes, in their area.

There are many constraints on local authorities getting houses built, not least land availability and planning, without one single “lever” that can be pulled to solve the problem. However, one area where authorities can gain back control is how they choose to commission the delivery of housing, whether through the procurement of development partners of the delivery of development “in-house”.

In this seminar we are going to look at how local government can maximise the chance of success and enable the delivery of housing projects. We will also look at some of the innovative models which are appearing in the market place to help tackle housing supply.

  • Commissioning local housing: structures / approaches
  • Maximising the chance of success
  • Legal pitfalls and challenges

Local Partnerships, in collaboration with Dentons, invites you to a seminar focused on the race to deliver new housing units and how new approaches to delivery can help. Dentons are kindly hosting the event which will take place on 13 July. Please click here for more information or email
