Wokingham Housing’s MD presents at Affordable Housing Conference

This month saw Bill Flood present at the 10th annual Affordable Housing Conference. Sitting on the Local and Regional Authorities panel, Bill’s presentation addressed the question of “How to solve a problem like Housing Delivery” focusing on how Wokingham Housing (WHL) are using their own local housing companies to build their own housing in partnership with Wokingham Borough Council. WHLs experience of delivering both affordable housing and market housing alongside two other councils, helped delegates understand how local housing companies are completely changing the shape of housing delivery for local authorities using their full range of freedoms and powers.

This popular conference provided the chance for delegates to gain valuable insight into what affordable housing really is in 2016, what the New Government Legislation means and where the commercial opportunities exist as well as networking with the leading professionals in Housing from across the UK.
