In a few days’ time the great and good of the housing sector will be heading to Manchester to celebrate its achievements and discuss the significant changes and challenges that will face the sector in the next 12 months.
We’re excited to be seeing friends and colleagues from across the UK’s housing sector again, and hearing from sector experts at the many events taking place (including at our two brilliant events – details below).
Housing is never far from the national agenda, and it’s fair to say that the last few weeks have been pretty eventful for the sector – from the passing of the Building Safety Act, to planning reform and plans for the new Infrastructure Levy, the Social Housing Regulation Bill, and the re-announcement of the extension of the Right to Buy.
These points will no doubt be hot topics for the conference, and we look forward to discussing the opportunities and challenges in implementing them. It’s going to be a busy couple of years for the sector, with significant political focus on how the sector reacts to the new requirements.
The agenda also includes a significant number of events on net zero, including our own on the opportunities for housing associations that will come through the retrofit agenda. We hope to see many of you there, as well as at our other events. We’re at stand G46 – come say hello!
Find out more about our activities at the conference below.
