I was invited to give a key address at an RICS CPD Day in Southampton last Thursday (8th Oct).
The conference delivered six hours of regionally-focused CPD learning, covering three separate streams dedicated to Land, Built Environment and Property – providing provide practical insights into a variety of key themes, including permitted development rights, collateral warranties and sustainability in real estate.
During an extended consultation with local area members, custom and self build projects were repeatedly identified as being of significant interest.
My introduction to custom and self build housing included addressing its benefits and the consideration of affordability/location. I also highlighted some custom and self build case studies from the UK and further afield.
