We invited several housing association chief executives and representatives from the investment sector to take part in what we anticipated would be a lively and insightful conversation.
The event took place during the CIH Conference, just hours after Homes England’s announcement that it would expand its Affordable Housing Programme to include estate regeneration. Naturally this became the focus of the discussion provoking a range of reactions and opinion around the table.
Over the next hour the group discussed the implications and impacts of the policy shift, assessing the opportunities it might bring as well as some of the potential shortfalls. As we had hoped, the event proved to be a catalyst for insightful discussion and passionate debate amongst the contributors.
