Insider’s breakfast panel will assess the progress in the North West Housing sector and discuss whether improved provisions for land and funding are providing the diversity of housing including luxury and affordable products for sale and rent, to truly solve the housing crisis.
Our Chief Executive Steve joins the MD of Lovell homes Jonathan Goring, assistant director of regeneration at Liverpool city council Mark Kitts and director at Indigo Planning Dough Hann as they discuss the housing crisis.
As the UK’s housing crisis deepens, Government support is arriving for house builders. Funding includes the Government’s £3 billion Home Building Fund, designed to help meet the development cost of homes for sale or rent. Local authorities’ plans, including those recently announced by Bolton Council and the Cheshire East Local Plan, are also bringing sites to market – but are these in the right areas to bring economic growth?
The panel will also analyse changing customer expectations when it comes to housing, including increasing levels of service and aftercare and the increasing strains these put on house builders. And we will take a look at branding and how to build a perception of quality in house building.
