Strong line up for HBF conference

A strong line up of speakers will address this year's HBF Policy Conference which will debate "The Government's Housing Strategy - can it deliver?"

Homes and Communities Agency chief executive Pat Ritchie will speak on the various initiatives underway to help the industry build, while Council of Mortgage Lenders director general Paul Smee will look at the imminent mortgage indemnity scheme.

Sir John Harman will also speak - Sir John is chairman of the Local Housing Delivery Steering Group. His Harman Review is due out soon and is set to look at the viability testing of local plans, required under the new draft National Planning Policy Framework, as well as the simplification and harmonisation of local standards.

The Conference - in London on Tuesday March 13 - will also include a Panel of experts to discuss and debate the NPPF and Localism as well as a look at Community Infrastructure Levy arrangements.

As ever, HBF director of economics John Stewart will add his expert view on the economy, the market and industry issues.
