About This Leadership Discussion

The housing crisis continues to challenge the built environment in the UK and consequently, there has been a noticeable and widely reported decline in the development and sale of new homes. Affordable and sustainable new homes still need to be built however for supply to meet with demand, particularly in the social housing arena.

The development sector has increasingly had to form more strategic partnerships and alliances to overcome these challenges and joint ventures (JVs) between housing associations, developers/house builders and/or local authorities have been entered into with greater frequency to create homes.

JVs can therefore certainly form a key part towards unlocking the country’s housing shortage during these economically challenging times. With each party sharing a common interest in developing new homes, is this the “perfect marriage”? Whilst these collaborations can be extremely rewarding and positive for those involved, in our experience it is fairly common for such JVs to not go according to plan, and sometimes they can be very costly.

At this roundtable hosted by Jon Coane, Social Housing Finance Partner and Joanna Lee-Mills, Partner and Head of Social Housing Development we will be looking at key things to consider when entering into a JV, the key ingredients for success and some of the challenges you may face and how to overcome them.

Location: Seminar Room, Shakespeare Martineau, No 1 Colmore Square, Birmingham.

Key Topics Covered
  • Before entering into a joint venture what key things should be considered?
