What is the big housing debate?

 

The big housing debate offers a unique opportunity for housing professionals from across the sector to analyse the implications of the Autumn Budget and the wider policy landscape in your region.

 

Each session will provide delegates with the chance to explore and examine, debate and discuss the key themes that are influencing and shaping housing delivery and how to deal with the most important housing management issues.

 

We will be using an interactive ‘Question Time’ format which will allow delegates to probe our leading speakers and really drill down into the heart of the matter and share solutions and best practice.
