For the second time, delegates at Sitematch London will be able to take part in a series of workshops running alongside the event’s “speed-dating”-style meeting format.
Urban Exposure, Doncaster Council, Montagu Evans, Opportunity South Essex, the Greater London Authority Housing Zone team and HTA Design will be holding 30-minute special focus sessions throughout the day on 8 February.
The programme will kick off with a session held by Urban Exposure from 9.45-10.15am: the residential development lending specialist will give an overview of the current lending market, including case studies of projects the organisation has lent on.
From 10.25-10.55am, Doncaster Council will present the investment and development opportunities in the borough.
Montagu Evans will give developers and local authorities a detailed insight into the community infrastructure levy (CIL) from 11.25-11.55am.
At noon, Opportunity South Essex will tell the audience what it is like to do business in South Essex.
At 2.05pm, attendees will be introduced to the Mayor of London’s housing zones, which aim to accelerate housing delivery and promote affordability. The Greater London Authority Housing Zone team will explain the funding package available to developers, registered providers and public-private partnerships. Two case studies will be discussed.
The programme will be closed by a workshop, held by HTA Design, on the housing delivery opportunities attached to density intensification in suburbs and offsite manufactory, from 2.45-3.15pm.
