Interview: Richard Donnell on the UK residential market

Richard Donnell is Zoopla’s Research and Insight Director and one of the UK’s long-standing property and housing gurus. We asked Richard to provide us with an analysis of the residential market ahead of our upcoming Resi Investment and Build to Rent Conference.

Key changes and responses to the planning white paper

The government’s Planning for the Future white paper outlines proposed changes to the current planning system. We’re taking a closer look at some of the reforms we could see and the reactions it has received so far.

How has Build to Rent coped with the pandemic?

Despite a sector still in its early years and one that initially attracted scepticism from traditional property investors, Build to Rent (BTR) is coming out of 2020 as one of the most resilient areas of the property market. Here’s a look at how it has performed and what the experts are saying.

As someone who has chaired a number of events for LDE and other conference organisers I am always impressed by the organisation and attention to detail of Andrew Mason and his team.  The content of the sessions is consistently good and the events very well attended by people from a wide range of disciplines.  Colleagues of mine who have attended as delegates have also commented on the high standard of these conferences.

Once again LDE have organised an event which covered viewpoints and opinion on every key element of the challenges facing the residential development industry in these difficult times. The insight provided was crucial in order to prepare for the new market we are facing.
