Real Estate & Planning host symposium on the housing land market
14 January 2019
Last week Real Estate & Planning hosted a symposium investigating key questions around the housing land market. The event was very well attended with representatives from industry, government, the third sector, professional bodies, land brokers, land promoters and academia.
The focus was mainly on the English market but a number of international experts attended and were able to share their experience of housing land markets and policy in the wider context.
Discussion included trends over time in the availability of public versus private land coming forward for development, reasons for unimplemented residential planning permissions, location driven demand for houses (including affordable housing) and the capacity of the market to build them.
