Add to calendar

NHC will be speaking at the AMPS ‘Government and housing in a time of crisis’ conference this September.

To achieve its aims, the conference proposes four open strands of enquiry and expertise:

  1. Local Authorities, Government and Policy – planning ideas for housing the future
  2. Building and Housing Professionals – ideas from inside (and about) the profession
  3. Community Projects, Artists and Resident Engagement – the experience of users
  4. Research, Academia, Innovation, Design and Case Studies – proposed and implemented models of housing

The questions it seeks to ask through these strands are various: What models of best practice housing provision do we have? What role do new design approaches have? Are there ideas from different nations that can be shared and developed? Are there alternate economic models that can be reasonably employed? What innovative models for community participation can we promote? What is current research in construction revealing?

It is open to academics and non-academics.

NHC members can access this conference at the reduced rate of £140. To secure this rate, please contact
