Is Low Impact Living on your agenda?

How do you deliver low impact living, affordable homes? Find out at the final Right to Build expo in Leeds, 29 November 2018.

Learn from the founders of LILAC Leeds, the UK's most prominent sustainable community-led housing scheme. 

Gain insight from the Wynyard Park Housing scheme - a landowner's perspective.

Discuss funding requirements and opportunities with Homes England and Mortgage lenders.

Richard Bacon MP will explain why custom and self build is the right way to deliver homes people want to live in from a political and economic perspective.

The Right to Build taskforce will provide an overview of existing types of custom & self build models and where they have been applied so far.

Networking is a key element in the programme and the exhibition allows for contacts with suppliers and future collaborators. 

In the afternoon, the focus is on in-depth discussions with experts on a set of topics. Choose two masterclasses to increase your knowledge on:

  • Legislation, Guidance and Good Practice
  • Mortgage and finance availability
  • How to facilitate building plots
  • Funding opportunities for bringing forward housing
  • Facilitating community-led projects.

OR: Book a space for the site visit to LILAC Leeds!

The Right to Build expo Leeds 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. 

We hope to see you there! Book your ticket here.
