Housing professionals invited to share views with minister at events


Housing minister Gavin Barwell is inviting housing professionals to join him to share their views on the housing white paper at a series of regional events.

Mr Barwell announced this week he will be attending a series of events from Monday 20 February to Mon 6 March.

He said: "The challenge of increasing supply cannot be met by government alone.

"That is why I want to hear from a wide range of stakeholders - councillors, local authority planning and housing officers, large and small developers, housing associations, estate agents, letting agents and others - about what they think about the white paper and how we can work together to fix our broken housing market.

"To that end I am going to spend the next couple of weeks travelling around the country trying to hear from as many housing and planning professionals as possible."

The events are taking place as follows. Book a place by clicking below.
