Kate Faulkner will explore the public aspiration for good homes - the consumer perspective. Malcolm Pitcher of In-House Associates, another leading expert in this area and Dr Elizabeth Ness will join a panel to discuss consumer preferences in new homes, and what we need to think about when it comes to sustainable features and consumer preferences.
Richard Blythe of the RTPI will give his perspective on the National Planning Policy Framework, experience to date and whether the presumption in favour of sustainable development is pushing better standards and more sustainability in new homes. This will be followed by a panel discussion of leading experts, Matt Bell of Berkeley Homes, Martin Randall of Brighton and Hove District Council, Elizabeth Ness of Crest Nicholson and John Hocking of Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust.
