The Second Annual Future Housing conference
Creative strategies for meeting new housing targets, creating sustainable new communities and designing customer-friendly homes

Date Of Conference: 4/21/2004

This year's conference coincides with the publication of the full Baker Review of Housing Supply, a document sure to have major implications for planning and the pace of development.

The lack of new housing has prompted property prices to soar, removing the option to buy from many people and forcing them back to the embattled stock of social housing or to an exorbitant private rental sector. An apparently permanent housing 'underclass' is being created.

The conference looks not just at the threats to housing renewal but also at the opportunities. Following a keynote speech from the head of the government unit entrusted with delivering the Sustainable Communities plan, a whole session is dedicated to the Barker Review. The second session engages particularly with two of the issues arising from the Review - the apparent lack of brownfield (or appropriate greenfield) land in areas of high demand, and the lack of demand for housing in certain areas of high provision.

The afternoon's sessions are dedicated to innovation. The third is a response to many of last year's delegates, who felt that new housing provision is unduly focused upon single occupier dwellings, at a time when the housing crisis extends to a variety of different households with widely varying needs.

Speakers: Richard McCarthy, Director General, Sustainable Communities Unit, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister; Gideon Amos, Director, Town and Country Planning Association; Michael Newey, Chief Executive, Broadland Housing Association; Robert Ashmead, Chief Executive, House Builders Federation; Clive Clowes, Head of Housing Procurement Practice & Developmen, Housing Corporation; Yolande Barnes, Head of Research, FPD Savills; David Birkbeck, CEO, Design for Homes; Janet Sutherland, Head of Housing Partnerships, London Borough of Camden; Peter Fletcher, Director, Peter Fletcher Associates; John Callcutt, CEO, Crest Nicholson; Tim Dwelly, Director, Live Work Network; Robert Shaw, Policy Officer, TCPA and Sustainable Housing Forum and Roger Zogolovitch, Director, Solid Space Developments Ltd.
