The six-part series (April 2018– January 2019) features a set of invaluable workshops, providing practical guidance on how to bring a housing scheme from concept to completion. You can book individual sessions, but delegates who attend all six will be recognised by the GLA Housing & Land Directorate as having completed more in-depth training. The workshop outcomes will also form the content of an up-to-date resource book, setting out the practical steps and tools required to get homes built in London.
Get in touch if you are interested in signing up for the course, or any of the individual events.
Increasing Housing Supply
Delegates will work into a road map and consider the actions needed to increase housing supply in their area; identifying a suitable site, setting objectives and considering the tools necessary for delivery.
Delegates will carry out a viability assessment; considering deliverables for a site including housing, communal space and local servicing allocation, as well as balancing expenditure, income and profit in a viability report.
Delegates will be asked to draft a ‘partnership approach stating who needs to work with whom, and when each partner should be involved to unlock housing sites and deliver new homes for London.
Working With & For Communities
Delegates will devise an engagement strategy which will include setting their objectives, deciding on which communication tools to use and explaining how the engagement outcomes will inform the project.
Delegates will consider what construction option is best for their site, how the financing and investment industry can help support delivery, as well as drafting templates for good Construction Management Plans.
Different Homes, Different Places?
Delegates will consider how to deliver good growth in their borough over the next ten years by setting out the range of homes needed in the area and identifying what works best where.
