Planning and Architecture
Self and Custom Build event 2016
The first Self and Custom Build event hosted by More Homes and Planning & Architecture Divisions was held on Thursday 15th September.
The event, chaired by Malcolm Fraser, brought together guest speakers, developers, planners, land interests and the finance sector, to share ideas and experience on how we can face the challenges, and find solutions to increasing the delivery of homes. Speakers included contributions Teignbridge, Sheffield and Glasgow Councils, The Council for Mortgage Lenders and inspiring developers working in Scotland.
The conference was followed by a reception in Parliament hosted by Mairi Evans MSP, with guest speaker Piers Taylor, architect and presenter of BBC2’s “The House that 100k Built” and a closing address from Kevin Stewart MSP, Minister for Local Government and Housing.
The presentations from the day are available here, together with a summary of the event from the Chair.
