Join us for this breakfast briefing which will deep dive into the findings of WSP Indigo’s latest research on the Five Year Housing Land Supply position. Hear about the impacts of the new provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework, Housing Delivery Test and new standard OAN and understand how these are expected to alter local authorities’ ability to demonstrate a five year supply in years to come.
As part of an emerging trend, a number of resident-led local parties are challenging their authority’s local plans. In this session, you will hear why they oppose the old local plan and what they intend to do differently to meet the local housing need.
Councillor Marianne Overton MBE, Independent Group Leader and LGA Vice-Chair, North Kesteven District Council

In this session, two different local authorities will present their strategies on combating the ongoing recruitment and resourcing issues that plague the planning profession. Hear about the benefits, lessons learned and future outlook for these strategies and how they can be applied in your workplace.
Joy Anibaba, Principal Housing Development Officer, Birmingham City Council
Changes to the NPPF last year and the Government’s drive to see Rent to Buy fully integrated into the social housing mix have raised the importance of this tenure type. This session will explore the implications of these recent developments for planners who will need to view rent to buy products as more than an intermediate housing solution.
