Planning For Housing will be back in October, for its fourth year, and is THE annual national gathering for key players within the public and private sectors to congregate, debate and discuss the key challenges when it comes to delivering the housing we need to meet the rapid growth in demand.
The agenda is currently being developed through hours of dedicated in-depth research with senior practitioners, and will be aiming to provide you with practical takeaways that you can implement back at the office.
