The annual CIEH Housing and Health Conference is the most popular conference for environmental health professionals working in housing. Now in its 9th year, the event has grown each year, regularly attracting more than 125 delegates. Every year the conference programme provides a strategic overview of topical housing policy alongside recent case studies and local policy and practice. This year is no exception and is perfectly timed to provide informed decision and debate.

Keynote speakers at the 2017 Housing and Health Conference will discuss the Government’s Housing White Paper ‘Fixing our broken housing market’. Published in February 2017, the white paper has a significant amount of new policy initiatives and of particular interest to environmental health includes: maximising the use of brownfield land, reviewing space standards, increasing the number of new builds aimed at the rental market and plans to encourage the development of housing that meets the needs of the future population.

Reflecting on the Housing and Planning Bill 2015-16 this conference will address the key outcomes and working models implemented and discuss opportunities and changes that are due to happen in April, including the launch of the new rogue landlord database in October. The conference will discuss, following the autumn statement, the affordable housing crisis and includes a session from the GLA on the Kidbrooke Estate project, a new initiate in trying to improve the situation.

Why you should attend:

  • Discuss and debate the recent housing white paper
  • Gain an insight into the latest challenges, tools and resources the Housing and Planning Bill 15/16 provides
  • Learn from the Kidbrooke redevelopment project and the affordable home promise
  • Understanding how to implement and manage banning orders and the new powers to raise revenue
