The discussion will consider the issues from the perspective of the landowner, house builder/developer, local authority planners, agents and solicitors. It will cover CIL and other contributions, the need and benefits of building more housing, how to undertake a viability appraisal and how to review one. Come armed with your questions and our expert panel will be ready to answer your questions.
