Building strategies – understanding the East of England housing market


Building strategies – understanding the East of England housing market

As affordable housing providers take a more commercial approach to development and asset management, it's vital all parts of the business understand where the UK housing market is headed over the next 12 months and beyond – nationally, regionally and locally.

To get exclusive insight into the East of England housing market and expert advice from top speakers, come along to our Building strategies event in Milton Keynes in July.

Chaired by HQN Chief Executive Alistair McIntosh and delivered in partnership with housing intelligence specialists Hometrack, the day will cover the following themes:

  • Predictions for the UK housing market in 2018

  • Learning from key development players
  • The local authority perspective on land and planning issues
  • Development opportunities and risks
  • Optimising sales and marketing potential for new homes
  • Stock management
  • Affordability and housing needs assessments.
