The Strategic Housing Conference

Following the success of last year’s Strategic Housing conference, we are pleased to announce the date for this year.

The drive to build high quality council housing, the continuing fight to prevent homelessness and the pressures created by our ageing population are just a few of the major challenges faced by local authorities up and down the country.

In a climate where budgets are still very much limited, invention, innovation and collaboration is essential. At this year's Strategic Housing conference, HQN will bring together councils to showcase outstanding housing initiatives, debate the hot topics of the day and share potential solutions to long-standing problems.

We will also bring you up to date with the latest policy developments, including the key announcements from the Budget and the new era of housing regulation.

Key themes:

  • Building new council housing
  • The new era of housing regulation for local authorities
  • Strategic partnerships with housing associations or developers
  • Strategies for PRS housing
  • Plans for homelessness
  • Climate change and the challenges posed by our housing stock
  • Meeting the housing needs of older generations
  • Ending social injustice in exempt accommodation.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Alistair McIntosh, Chief Executive, HQN - Chair
  • Paul Smith, Cabinet Member for Housing, Bristol City Council
  • Paul Gadsby, Cabinet Member for Housing, London Borough of Lambeth
  • Joanne Drew , Housing and Regeneration Director, Enfield Council
