Innovation Exchange: Working with residents to meet local housing needsRegister now
Councils are grappling with the challenges caused by the housing crisis.
It’s often difficult to secure local development, navigate conflicts of interest and balance public input with investment. Community engagement can be adversarial and shared solutions beyond reach.
But what if by establishing a community-powered approach to planning and housing you could develop win-wins to achieve the best outcomes for your area?
In this session you will learn
- How councils are engaging residents as equal stakeholders on complex housing and development projects
- How you can embed resident participation from the beginning and unlock conversations about the communities and homes residents want to live in
- How to hear the voices of those with the best understanding of the local context and the most at stake.
You’ll have the opportunity to share your challenges, and learn from senior council officers from across the country.
If we are to change the story, we need to try something new. Join us to find out how.
