The government has committed to delivering 300,000 homes a year by 2022. But how many of these homes will be built to alleviate the housing crisis in the North and Midlands of England? Whilst there is a commitment to build up to 5,100 homes in Birmingham as a wider regeneration project for the 2022 Commonwealth games, what will happen to cities and towns further North?
Bringing together over 120 representatives from local authorities, developers and planning consultants, Planning for Housing North & Midlands is the platform for all of the key sector stakeholders to develop strategies on how to get more homes allocated, permitted and delivered in the North and Midlands of England.
Planning for Housing North & Midlands is a unique opportunity to share best practice, learn success strategies from key case studies, as well as develop solution strategies for overcoming challenges that stall housing projects in the North and Midlands.
Date and Venue
Planning For Housing North & Midlands will take place on 19 March 2020 at:
