Bridging the gap between ambition and delivery

Place-shaping is one of the most topical issues for local authorities right now, with exciting opportunities for both new and existing communities. But how can councils deliver more housing and foster relationships to get new projects off the ground in an era of constraint? This is just one of the many challenges the programme will consider to support councils in delivering effective developments and regeneration projects that bring fairness, opportunity and prosperity to local areas.

Invest in 24 hours out of the office for space to think, learn and network with peers to support in navigating the challenges of place shaping and housing delivery to build new communities and strengthen existing ones.
