Central government has established that there’s a current need to build 300,000 homes a year as a country – and the sector needs to contribute. Whilst previous housing supply reviews have identified key issues, such as affordability and planning on top of a previous slow down of building due to the pandemic, where does climate change fit in? How do we ensure what we’re building at the moment is fit for purpose towards our 2050-legislated goals?
What will be covered:
Understanding the new development context – what’s going on in the world of new developments inclusive of the Future Home Standard?
Current new development issues – what energy standard is needed; sustainability design considerations; avoiding ‘retrofit by regret’; heating source market; carbon offsetting (inclusive of natural sources and against current stock
Delivery – traditional build vs modern methods of construction
Residents – engagement, working together and resident refusal points to consider
Long-term considerations – maximising current stock sustainability, funding and lessons learned from working with internal stakeholders
Why come to the best practice group?
This is your chance to find out more about what’s going on in the world of new development. The event will be chaired by Jon Daley, Asset Sustainability Manager at Wirral-based, 13,000-home HA Magenta Living.
Magenta Living have built new homes via modern methods of construction and are working with numerous development partners (inclusive of site developers, zero-carbon heating sources and the University of Liverpool) to find out more on what we can learn about the home of 2050 now. Likewise, they’ve worked with best practice partners to understand what a 2050 energy rating looks like inclusive of carbon offsetting, heating sources and, of course, resident engagement.
On top of this you’ll be joined by peers to find out what others are doing; be given the chance to have honest and open discussions about the world of new developments; as well as given the opportunity to share best practice and ideas with a group of likeminded professionals.
