How to deliver homes via Custom Build in East England

Are you based in Cambridgeshire or the Eastern region? Are you looking at new ways to deliver more and better housing? Then this is the right event for you!

The next Right to Build expo will take place in Cambourne, 4 October 2018. It provides ample information on how to make new homes happen via the custom and group self build route based on the right to build. You will learn from local authorities and developers who have successfully provided services plots and delivered custom build developments.

A special session is looking at how to unlock the potential for custom build and community-led housing schemes across South Cambs and the Eastern area, what type of projects are already underway, what support mechanisms are in place for community groups etc.

There is time and space for networking in the exhibition and the afternoon programme gives opportunity for in-depth discussions with experts during a set of masterclasses as well as site visits to award winning housing scheme Marmalade Lane in Cambridge and Net Zero's semi-detached homes and manufacturing facility at Six Mile Bottom.

Richard Bacon MP explains why it is in the best interest of local communities to support custom and self build housing in their area while Mario Wolf, taskforce director, will introduce you to the various delivery models for custom and self build housing.

Expect to gain crucial information on how this works in the current planning system, what type of mortgages are available and how to work with custom build enablers.

The Right to Build expo in Cambourne gives you ample opportunity to delve deeper into the most critical issues around custom and self build, so that you can kick-start a Right to Build project in your area.

Who should attend

Local authorities, community housing groups, architects, landowners, developers, planners, custom and self-builders.
