Housing supply in the new world - developing for profit


13 July 2017 - Grimsby

About the event

Venue: Grimsby

Time: 11.30am - 2.00pm

With Government policy & legislation clearly abandoning social rent in favour of home-ownership and development-for-sale, many RPs are operating more like private developers than ‘traditional’ social housing providers of old. This session will look at the opportunity, challenge and risk that increased commercial development and new home-ownership initiatives bring, and how best to structure development/land deals to minimise costs and maximise outcomes. Areas of focus will include:

• Ensuring RPs are structured optimally to deliver commercial, profit-driven non-primary-purpose activity

• Avoiding/reducing hidden costs of commercial development, such as SDLT, S106 etc

• Ensuring viability and feasibility of purely commercial schemes, market research etc

• Starter Homes

• Thinking smarter about commercial property elements of mixed-use developments

• What relaxed regulation means for development/asset management – freedoms, opportunities

• Costs, and alternative scheme funding models (now grant is gone), such as institutional investors

Benefits of attending

Raise awareness of the opportunity, challenge and risk that increased commercial development and new home-ownership initiatives bring, and how best to structure development/land deals to minimise costs and maximise outcomes.
