Study Tour: Council led housing development

With more than a third of local authorities setting up their own development companies, many are learning how to build housing again for the first time in four decades, bringing about exciting new opportunities for long term investment in design quality. In this tour, we will hear from local authorities and their design teams who are leading this housing transformation. This will include visits to two major schemes in Hackney, Kings Crescent and the Colville Estate, followed by a talk by Croydon’s Brick by Brick Head of Design, Chloe Phelps.

Delivered by:

Huw Trevorrow, Design Advisor, Design South East

Contributors will include:

Ken Rorrison, Regeneration Design Manager, Hackney Council
Chloë Phelps, Head of Design, Brick x Brick, Croydon
Simon Henley, Henley Halebrown Architects
Ed Blackett, Karakusevic Carson Architects

Meeting/drop off location: Stratford International
Lunch and coach travel between sites will be provided.
