Right to build task force

The next knowledge-sharing Right to Build Expo has been announced, for the 6 April 2018 at City Hall, London.

Created by NaCSBA, Right to Build Task Force and Wood for Good, in partnership, the London expo is the fourth in a series of regional expos, sharing custom build and self-build experiences with the aim of growing the numbers of homes delivered by the sector.

The event is open to architects, builders, planners, surveyors, lenders, developers, community groups and especially local authorities. On the day a range of keynote speakers will be sharing best practice and advice about how to get the most out of the Right to Build legislation and use the registers as evidence of demand for serviced-plots.

As well as insight and panel discussions, the expo will share case studies and international models, with a series of masterclasses providing targeted support across a range of areas.

Speakers at the Right to Build so far confirmed include:

Richard Bacon MP, Right to Build Task Force Ambassador and Chair of APPG for Self Build Custom and Community Housebuilding and Placemaking Why it is important to support custom and self-build housing;

Michael Holmes, Chair, NaCSBA Market demand, the legal obligation, market growth and examples of where custom and self-build is already happening; and

Mario Wolf, Director, Right to Build Task Force Supporting custom and self-build delivery across the UK. 

Other sessions include:

The new demand assessment tool for Custom and Self-build housing;

Mortgage and finance availability;

Planning for Custom and Self-build housing;

Neighbourhood planning considerations.

In addition, delegates have the opportunity to join a range of masterclasses which drill into viability considerations:

Planning for custom and self-build housing;
