Council officers invited to join Homes England’s summer programme

Homes England has invited council officers to join its summer learning programme, which is aimed at sharing knowledge on topics ranging from effective project management to principles of market failure.

The summer learning programme sessions are aimed at planning, housing delivery, regeneration, housing policy, housing strategy, development, legal and finance staff.

It will run from 14 to 25 June. You can book onto a session here

And it will take place at the agency’s Local Government Capacity Centre, which was conceived help Homes England work more productively with local government and help meet the government’s ambition of creating 300,000 homes a year by 2024.

Now, following extensive research and consultation on where the sector most needs support, the centre will begin to offer a range of tools and initiatives to boost skills and help authorities with their end-to-end development plans.

‘Effective partnerships are essential if we are to build the homes the country needs, so it is vital that we offer accessible tools, skills, funding and people,’ said Homes England chair, Peter Freeman.

‘I’d like to thank our local government colleagues for their input as we’ve developed the capacity centre. I’m confident it marks a real step forward – so please join us on the summer learning programme where we can build deeper and more fruitful partnerships.’
