The topic of the conference, which takes place on 4 October, is How to Plan to Make Housing Delivery Happen. It focuses on the implications of the government's drive to make planning authorities and developers ensure that the required homes are not only planned for but also delivered.
Delegates will hear senior speakers discuss the implications of the proposed housing delivery test, the housing white paper and other relevant government policy changes.
Paul Beardmore, director of housing and residential growth at Manchester City Council, will speak at a session looking at how the work of new city-region mayors can increase housing supply.
Apart from Beardmore, other speakers include: Harriet Fisher, team leader of DCLG's developer contributions team; David Rudlin, director of consultancy URBED and chair of the Academy of Urbanism; Kate Henderson, chief executive of the Town and Country Planning Association; Jennifer Peters, strategic planning manager at the Greater London Authority; Berkeley Group chairman, Tony Pidgley; Department for Communities and Local Government's chief planner, Steve Quartermain; National Infrastructure Commission chief executive, Phil Graham; Homes and Communities Agency director of accelerated construction, Stephen Kinsella; Local Plans Expert Group chair, John Rhodes and Transport for London property development director, Lester Hampson.
