Join us and Planning Futures at the Labour Party Conference for a fringe event exploring what local authorities and housebuilders can do to ensure that infrastructure is provided upfront and delivered strategically at the regional level.
Adequate infrastructure provision is central to sustainable housing delivery. In the UK, however, infrastructure provision is often an afterthought. Instead of having infrastructure in place upfront, before construction starts, communities and developers are often left in the lurch. This event will explore what Local Authorities and housebuilders can do to ensure that infrastructure is provided upfront and in time for new and extended settlements. It will also explore how infrastructure can be delivered strategically at the regional level.
