WEBINAR: Solving the Housing Crisis; Sponsored by Rentplus

Thursday, 14th May 2020 1000hrs – 1100hrs

Online Webinar,

Over the coming months we’ll be hosting a series of webinars – helping to keep the industry moving and talking during a period of uncertainty, enabling people to talk and build relationships whilst helping to maintain industry confidence and demonstrating thought leadership.

This webinar will focus on the need to accelerate the delivery of new homes across the UK.

It will take more than a webinar to solve the housing crisis however, there are many different opinions as to what we need to do to begin the process. Housebuilders, councils, housing associations and developers will come together in the first of our UK housing webinars to provide their solutions to the challenge that the UK faces to build more homes. Speakers will share their current development plans and proposed schemes and also address some of the challenges that the industry faces, not just during this difficult period but also when the market recovers.

This event will run in a similar manner to all of our physical events – with short presentations from several key speakers and opportunities for live Q&A and interaction.

Speakers include:

  • Rentplus – With the government committed to expanding rent to buy, and the housing minister confirming rent to buy for affordable home ownership tenure within the NPPF, Rentplus has £2bn of funds to immediately invest in rent to buy properties. Rentplus is seeking new local authority and housing association partners.  They have a current pipeline of 10,000 new homes with 5,000 due to be in contract by 2020.  They’ve already supported families to start saving towards home ownership across Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds, Northampton and Cambridgeshire, with plans to deliver many more homes this year across the country.  
  • Homes England – with £2.3bn worth of capital grant funding to accelerate the development of new homes in England and Wales, Paul will give an overview of Homes England development priorities, in particular which major developments they are bringing to market as a priority and will help the built environment supply chain can understand the sheer scale of opportunity for involvement.
  • Redrow – They need no introduction having firmly established themselves as one of the UK’s leading house builders with hundreds of millions of pounds of development in the pipeline across the country. An expert in masterplanning, Kevin will talk the audience through their forthcoming plans while also delivering high level thought leadership about Redrow’s contribution to solving the housing crisis and battling the Covid-19 fallout.
  • Thirteen Group – As one of the UK’s most active and innovative social housing developer, Chris is leading a £1bn rolling development programme across the North East aiming to deliver thousands of homes and regenerate previously ‘left behind’ areas. On the frontline of solving the housing crisis, Chris will talk through, in depth, their upcoming schemes and go into detail about how the audience can contribute to Thirteen’s ambition.
  • Fruition PropertiesBringing their unique perspective to this discussion, Parul will talk about the massive potential that airspace property developers have in helping to solve the housing crisis. With millions of pounds of development in the pipeline across the London skyline, Parul is well placed to tackle questions around complex planning issues and development and is keen to engage with the built environment supply chain to help grow their business.
