Is making homes beautiful the key to solving the UK’s housing crisis?
Earlier this year, the government’s Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission (BBBBC) made waves with an interim report that argued beauty was in the eye of the planning committee and that aesthetically pleasing developments should, and would, get the green light more easily.
At the RESI Convention next month, BBBBC co-chair Nicholas Boys Smith will take to the stage to talk about the commission’s aim to tackle poor-quality design and build and to win the hearts and minds of the public and local authorities alike.
The keynote will be a must-attend for a sector that has been challenged by the government to bring forward 300,000 new homes a year by the middle of the next decade, in the face of notoriously strict planning regulations.
Boys Smith will be joined at RESI by new housing minister Esther McVey, who will be making her first official address to the housing sector at the three-day event.
