The current opportunities for housing development

As we touched upon recently, updates to the draft National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) should provide developers with more opportunity and freedom in developing existing brownfield sites, but there is little mention within the framework of openings for development on alternative plots. We examine the current opportunities for housing development in the UK right now.

The rise of co-living

Today, co-living has progressed into a social movement that focuses not just on the convenience that shared housing provides, but on a sense of community and collaboration. With the average rent in London having risen to £1884 per month and an increasing demand for housing, we examine the trends in co-living, as well as potential investment opportunities for developers. 

The rise of the micro home: what today’s residential buyers are looking for

Micro-living has become an appealing model of living for those young professionals who are otherwise unable to get on the property ladder. We examine the growth within the micro-living market over the last couple of years and how this may develop going forward.

Disclaimer And Terms Of Booking

  1. By placing a booking, you are engaging in a contract of sale with London Development Events Ltd (Company number 05994382 trading as LD Events) to attend a conference and pay for this attendance. 

  2. As soon as it is made, a booking is confirmed. We are of course very flexible when it comes to cancellations or amendments to bookings after this point. However, delegate attendance is confirmed with the conference venue twelve full working days before any scheduled event. For the avoidance of doubt, a 'working day' is Monday to Friday but excludes weekends and UK Bank Holidays.
    After this time LD Events has to pay for delegate attendance as well as food and conference materials and resultantly we are unable to accept any cancellations on places after this point. If no cancellation is received before this twelve working day deadline, the full fee will be payable, regardless of attendance of the conference.
    Changes of attendee name are permitted up to 24 hours before the start of any scheduled event. LD Events will provide the conference and related materials on the day of the conference only.
     
  3. By placing a booking at one of our events, you are agreeing that you have the authority of the organisation you represent to do so. You also agree that you will be able to make a £ Sterling payment to us by bank account transfer or cheque directly to our UK bank account, without the need for international tax registration, forms, or reclaiming of fees from any other jurisdiction or authority. It should also not be necessary for LD Events to fill in any other forms or engage in any further accounting registration process, be that paper forms, online forms, by telephone, or any other method. LD Events shall send an invoice by email made out to your company or organisation for payment.

  4. Should a delegate be ill on the day of an event, the delegate place can be transferred to a colleague but not cancelled. Only in extreme circumstances, and purely at the discretion of LD Events, can a place be cancelled because of illness, and a doctor's note shall be required.

  5. Bookings made less than twelve working days before an event are final, for the same reasons detailed in Term 2 above, and cannot be cancelled.

  6. Once a booking is placed through our online booking system it is then confirmed and can only be cancelled using the procedure detailed here. Non attendance at an event, without complying with this procedure, will mean that the full delegate fee is still payable.
    We have a very simple cancellations system - this is done by email to info@ldevents.net.  Cancellations must be at least 12 full working days before any conference, for the reasons detailed above in Term 2. We will then send through confirmation that we have received it, at which point it becomes valid. Under no circumstances can any cancellations or amendments to any booking be made over the phone, in person, by post or by any other method except for email. Payments are due within 30 days from the date of invoice and are via cheque or BACS. By placing this booking you accept that invoice delivery is  via email and upon receipt this then needs to then be settled.

  7. LD Events cannot accept responsibility for any of the views, opinions or comments of anybody present at any of our events, be it the Chairman, speakers or any other attendee. 

  8. You will be registered to receive Conference information by email. You also consent that we will hold all the information that you type into the form on our system & electronic details, so that we may process your booking and send you information relating to our conferences, for example, joining instructions, invoices, conference materials, delegate lists, plus anything else relating to our events. Your contact details will never be passed to any third parties and you will be protected by our Privacy Policy
