How is Nutrient Neutrality impacting developments and housing supply?

Planning Webinar

About This Webinar

23 June 2022, 09:30 – 10:30

On 16 March 2022, the Government announced that an additional 27 catchment areas, affecting an additional 42 planning authorities, may now be subject to the requirement for nutrient neutrality. The requirements mean that all developments in the affected catchment areas will have to demonstrate that the nutrients from all surface water runoff and wastewater generated by a development must be less than or equal to the nutrients generated by the existing land use.

While this is an expansion of the catchment areas and councils affected, this is not a recent issue and some areas have been grappling with this issue for many years.

This is an increasingly important issue being played out across many sensitive catchments in the England and is, without doubt, a daunting issue for many council’s and developers faced with this additional administrative burden of trying to protect some of our most sensitive rivers and environments.

In this webinar Andrew Gore and Kevin Exley explain:

  • The legislative changes and the expectations of Natural England

  • What catchments and local authority areas affected

  • What you can do to understand the extent to which your developments are affected by nutrient neutrality requirements

  • The interventions you can put in place to keep developments happening

The challenges of acquiring larger sites and associated planning and legal issues with development land

Webinar | Registered Providers

About This Webinar

Thursday 05 May 2022, 09:30 - 10:15

With the Government's mandate to 'build, build, build', the pressure is on for those in the housing sector to deliver against the backdrop of the highest ever demand for new housing stock.

Registered providers are facing more challenges than ever with issues such as:

  • Wage inflation materials shortages, price rises, and delays caused by COVID

  • Labour and skills shortages

  • Increased insolvencies furlough ending and the need to repay Government loans plus significant regulatory changes in the pipeline

  • Obtaining land development sites

This webinar offers a whistle-stop tour of challenging issues faced by registered providers specifically around acquiring larger sites and the associated planning issues, as many RPs scale up their development programmes, with less reliance being placed on Section 106 units.

To bring these issues to life we have created a fictitious case study exploring some of the issues our social housing team deals with on a regular basis to highlight what you need to know to avoid and/or handle common issues and avoid the pitfalls.

Social Housing

Delivering housing that works for residents and landlords alike has never been more challenging. Nationally, there is a serious shortage of affordable and social homes and the situation is expected to worsen as demand continues to grow. Registered providers need advice and support to find delivery models that work in a rapidly-changing marketplace.

How do registered providers make sites more financially viable?

Webinar | Retirement living

About This Webinar

Wednesday 06 April, 09:30 - 10:15

The global pandemic has had a profound effect on people’s lives, with many reappraising the type of lifestyle they want to have as they get older. A recent survey by Housing LIN has shown that more than one in four homeowners aged over 65 would “definitely or maybe [be] likely to move to a retirement community”, after being shown the lifestyle and facilities on offer. Based on the latest population numbers for over-65s, this already equates to more than 2.5 million people potentially wanting a retirement community home.

The challenge for registered providers is how do you get the balance of having the right product, designed for the right people and in the right location? What are the must haves and what are the ‘would like to haves’ that could make the scheme unviable in the long term.

In this webinar Louise Drew, our Head of Building Communities at Shakespeare Martineau, will be joined by Darren Clarke from Arcadis, Phil Schmid from CBRE, Ian Mellor from Pozzoni Architects and Francis Burrows from Orbit.

Our panel will explore:

  • Funding – we will explore the variety of funding structures available that offer flexible and low cost funding solutions for developments – debt is not the only option

  • What can be learned from the private sector when it comes to driving returns, scale and services and the viability of operations

  • Land - accessing land is key. How do registered providers avoid competing on the open market with private housebuilders

  • What does good design look like? How do you make an aspirational living without breaking the bank but yet keep the project flexible to adapt to changing design/technology needs?

This is a live webinar and there will be questions and answers at the end but if you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk

Who Should Attend

Registered providers, investors, private developers, care home operators and social housing providers.

Recovering rent from non-paying commercial tenants

Webinar | Landlord & Tenant Advice

About This Webinar

Thursday 24 March, 08:30 – 09:30

New measures will be introduced from March which will have an impact on landlords, many of whom have already been left thousands of pounds out of pocket due commercial rent arrears arising during the pandemic.

While more commercial tenants are now paying rent, many still have arrears dating back to the beginning of the national lockdown period in March 2020. From 25 March 2022, the Commercial Rent (Coronavirus) Bill will establish a legally-binding arbitration process for landlords and tenants to settle outstanding debts.

In our panel discussion, we looked at the impact of the new legislation, including how landlords can deal with non-paying tenants and maximise recovery moving forward. We’ll also explore how the market is looking, including whether the recent spate of CVAs and restructuring plans have given tenants too much power to get out of unprofitable leases.

We will also discuss:

  • How are landlords dealing with rent arrears? Are they drawing down from rent deposits or pursuing guarantors?

  • Does the new legislation require disputes to be referred to arbitration, or will landlords still be able to use legal and insolvency proceedings to recover the arrears owed or terminate a tenant’s lease?

  • How are landlords persuading tenants to take-up space? Are landlords finding that they are having to give more incentives or are lease assignments more prevalent to other businesses thriving as we emerge from the pandemic?

  • How is the rental outlook and market generally? Is the market tenant-friendly and has the rise of CVAs had an impact on this?

Dealing with the insolvency process

Avoiding insolvency in the construction industry | Webinar

About This Webinar

Wednesday 9 February, 09:30 - 10:15 BST

Dwindling supplies of key building materials alongside soaring prices and labour shortages is having a huge impact on the construction industry – despite it being one of the first sectors to bounce back when pandemic restrictions started easing.

These challenges coupled with tight margins and deliverable dates means the risk of overtrading is increasing. And with the end of furlough and a release of the current restrictions on creditor action, we’re predicting a rise in insolvencies in the construction sector.

In the fifth part of this webinar series specifically designed for the construction industry, we explored the preventative measures firms can take to minimise their risk of insolvency, as well as talking through the process should a business find itself in a vulnerable situation. We also looked at:

  • Administration v liquidation v LPA receivership

  • CVAs

  • A1 moratoriums

  • Schemes of arrangement

Who Should Attend

Managing Directors, Finance Directors, Operations Directors, Commercial Directors and Contract Managers in construction companies.

Contract breaches and getting paid: What action can you take?

Avoiding insolvency in the construction industry | Webinar

About This Webinar

Wednesday 8 December 2021, 09:30 - 10:15 BST

It was one of the industries that was booming following the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions, but recently, the construction sector has been hit with multiple challenges – leaving many businesses across the country fearing collapse.

Contributing factors include price rises for materials, as well as labour and material shortages. These, combined with tight margins and deliverable dates, puts the industry at risk of overtrading.

And with the end of furlough and a release of the current restrictions on creditor action, we could start seeing businesses in the construction sector going insolvent.

In the third part of this five-part webinar series specifically designed for the construction industry, we explored the preventative measures businesses can take to minimise their risk of insolvency, as well as talking through the process should a business find itself in a vulnerable situation. We also explored:

  • Ways to pursue a claim

  • Litigation (and how to ensure you’re in good shape)

  • Debt recovery options

  • Timing considerations; removing (or retaining) goods and materials

The warning signs: what to do when they appear and how to minimise risk

Avoiding insolvency in the construction industry | Webinar

About This Webinar

Wednesday 24 November, 9:30 - 10:00 BST

When COVID-19 restrictions started easing, the construction sector experienced its highest volume of new orders since July 2014, with insolvencies in the industry at their lowest level in a decade.

However, it has recently been hit with building materials shortages and price hikes, and decreases in available labour, all against tight margins and deliverable dates – making it vulnerable to overtrading.

Coupled with the end of furlough and a release of the current restrictions on creditor action, we predict there will be a rise in insolvencies in the sector.

We’ve designed a five-part webinar series specifically for the construction industry, which looked at the preventative measures firms can take to minimise their risk of insolvency.

In the second part of this series, we explored:

  • Payment certificates

  • Complying with the terms of your contract

  • When is the right time to terminate?

  • Things to monitor

  • Early action to take

Key contract and pre-contract considerations

Avoiding insolvency in the construction industry | Webinar

About This Webinar

Thursday 4 November, 09:30 - 10:00 BST

The construction market is supposedly booming since COVID-19 restrictions were lifted, but is suffering shortages of labour and material, and increased prices of materials, against tight margins with tight deliverable dates (and the linked risk of non-payment / claims for contract breaches).  The risk of overtrading is increasing and we predict that this, coupled with the release of the current restrictions on creditor action, will create a rise in insolvencies in the sector.

In this series, we will cover:

  • Pre-contract checks

  • Insolvency/Termination clauses; step in rights, retention of title clauses

  • Different types of contract; interlocking agreements; JVs; making sure everything is tied up

If you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk

Who Should Attend

What to do if/ when crunch time approaches

Avoiding insolvency in the construction industry | Webinar

About This Webinar

Wednesday 19 January, 09:30 - 10:15 BST

While the COVID-19 pandemic challenged businesses across the UK, the construction industry bounced back at a much faster pace than expected. However, labour shortages and the price of construction materials continuing to soar amid a scarcity of supplies means this trend is beginning to reverse.

As government support winds down – with the end of furlough and a release of the current restrictions on creditor action – we’re likely to see a rise in insolvencies in the construction sector.

We’re delivering a five-part series of webinars designed specifically for the industry looking at the preventative measures to minimise the risk of insolvency and to understand the process should your business find itself in a vulnerable situation.

In the fourth part of this series, we look at:

  • How to get matters in order

  • Potential rights under contracts (including termination for insolvency)

  • Engagement of key stakeholders (or not) and their rights

  • Practical steps; the insolvency processes

Avoiding costly planning appeals: what needs to change in national and local planning policies

Webinar | Retirement housing

About This Webinar

Tuesday 5 October 2021, 09:30 – 10:30 BST

Whilst the Government acknowledge there is a ‘critical’ need nationally for more later living accommodation, the Housing Communities and Local Government Select Committee Report into the Planning White Paper has recommended that stronger national policy/legislation is required to support an increase in provision. Recent Appeal Decisions have also exposed at a local level, a lack both of a proper assessment of the need for such accommodation, and plan policies to secure delivery.

The message to authorities who refuse planning permission for later living accommodation (including extra care) in circumstances where they have failed to carry out a proper assessment of the housing needs of older people, and do not have policies in place to deliver choice in terms of meeting such needs, appears to be clear. Indeed, there would appear to be an increasing likelihood of such decisions being overturned on appeal and of costs awards being made against such authorities to add to the huge resources and substantial costs they themselves have to invest in fighting these appeals.

Development plans need to be updated and the National Policy Planning Framework needs to support the policy side of retirement housing. In this webinar we were joined by a panel of experts who explored:

  • Responding to change in development plans to deliver retirement housing?

  • Step changes required to planning policy at LA and National level?

  • How do we achieve this change?

Retirement housing: Why is the supply of housing with care so limited in Scotland and what will it take to boost it?

Webinar | Retirement housing

About This Webinar

Tuesday 23 November 2021, 16:30 - 17:15 BST

Scotland's population is ageing. The number of people aged 75 and over is set to increase 85% by 2039. It means that, by then, over 800,000 people will be over the age of 75. Currently there is only enough housing with care stock to cater for roughly 1% of over 75's versus other countries such as New Zealand where there's enough for 14%.

Age appropriate housing is essential in ensuring quality of life for many vulnerable older adults and yet the housing with care sector in Scotland is almost non existent. Housing with care is not a solution for everyone, but it is an essential part of the housing mix and for many people who do choose to live in these schemes, their quality of life is excellent.

Recent investment in the housing with care sector in England is indicative of the fact that investors are recognising the opportunity. How can Scotland attract investment and what role does the state play in stimulating supply?

In this webinar we will be joined by Andrew Fyfe, Co-founder of Sovereign Property Partnership, Dr Vikki McCall, Senior lecturer at University of Stirling, Paul Harries, Executive Chairman at Life Care Residences and a panel of other experts to discuss:

  • Why there is a supply shortage and what the state can do to intervene.

  • New Zealand v Scotland - Identifying why the two nations are comparable and focusing on a case study of one major operator to examine whether this model would work for Scotland.

  • What are the challenges in Scotland from an operator/ developer perspective?

  • What are the common legal obstacles and possible solutions to implement event fees in Scotland?

This is a live webinar and there will be questions and answers at the end but if you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk.

Who Should Attend

Registered providers, investors, private developers, care home operators, social housing providers who are either looking to develop in Scotland or gain a better understanding of these challenges and opportunities.

Webinar - Retirement Housing

Repurposing the High Street

It is estimated that substandard housing costs the NHS £1.4billion every year - unsuitable housing including issues with cold, damp, and hazards causing trips and falls are exacerbating poor physical health and contributing to poor mental health. And with an average of 48 shops, restaurant and other leisure and hospitality venues closed permanently every day across England, Wales and Scotland last year due to covid, could a pivot in use of the high street fill two needs with one deed?

In this webinar Louise Drew, Partner and Head of Building Communities was in conversation with Mike Gill - Regional Managing Director Midlands and North at Lifestory Group, Emma Webster- Head of Corporate Affairs at Lifestory Group and María Jurado- Senior Architectural Designer at Glenn Howells Architects to discuss:

The opportunities building close to a town or city centre can offer the retirement living sector

Webinar - Housing

Buying or selling a property: Important forthcoming changes to Local Land Charges being implemented across Local Authorities

With Stratford-upon-Avon being digitalised from 10 May and other Midlands regions following shortly we are delighted to be joined by Jamie Winch, Senior Delivery Manager at HM Land Registry.

In this webinar Tom Ansell, Partner at Shakespeare Martineau is in conversation with Jamie about HM Land Registry’s ambition to increase the pace of delivery and complete the migration of all Local land Charge (LLC) data by 2025. The LLC Programme is transforming a fragmented, inefficient service currently delivered by local authorities to a single, national, digital register across England and Wales.

These forthcoming changes drive transparency and innovation in the UK property sector through geospatial data that will unlock billions of pounds worth of value for the UK economy over the long term - benefiting buyers, sellers and lenders​.

Currently, it can cost up to £80 and take between a day and over a month to obtain this information from a local authority. These forthcoming changes by HM Land Registry will provide instant access to LLC information in a standard format for a set fee of £15.

Webinar - Later Living

Build to rent and retirement living – sharing observations for the benefit of the sectors

This webinar explores the fundamental similarities and challenges across both markets to help maximise growth and sustainable delivery, prioritising community as the key to demand.

Our panel discusses the differences and synergies between the markets and lessons that can be learned by working more closely together, especially in terms of the opportunities for both sectors from inter-generational living and unlocking the urban market. Key things to be explored will include access to the ‘right’ land, funding, planning and inclusive design for the demographic, together with issues around affordability and viability of services and communal spaces.

SHMA Talks

Lockdown: One year on

On 23 March, it will be exactly one year from when the UK first went into lockdown. We didn’t envisage that we’d be in a third lockdown one year on, but here we are again; although this time, there may finally be some light at the end of the long tunnel.

At our next episode of SHMA Talks, our CEO Sarah Walker-Smith will be in conversation with some of the UK’s most influential leaders reflecting on the past year, the impact on our economy and communities, and what we might expect in the future.

Professor Abhinay Muthoo
Professor of Economics and Dean of Warwick in London
Sarah Walker-Smith

National Design Code: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Design is currently a hot topic of debate, with the Government consulting on a national design guide and the use of design codes to deliver ‘beauty’.

The requirement for development to achieve a well-designed and safe built environment has long been a key principle of sustainable development, but the Government’s commitment to the concept of beauty and a new set of tools to deliver it signals a step-change in approach.

Beauty means different things to different people and so what opportunities and challenges do the changes being proposed present for different sectors? Or are the tools to achieve beautiful places already in place but by a different name?

In this webinar Richard Cooke and David Pendle, Associate Director's at Marrons Planning are in conversation with an expert guest panel regarding:

What is “beautiful”
Whether the proposed changes will make a positive impact on the places that we are able to deliver.

Standard Method – the implications for plan-making and development opportunities across the East Midlands

The Government recently announced its decision to rebalance standard method housing figures by directing growth towards the city authorities including Leicester, Nottingham and Derby.

This Marrons Planning webinar focuses on what the implications are for plan-making across the region and will be led by Andrew Gore, Partner and David Pendle, Associate Director. Covering:

Will municipal boundary constraints in the cities and a lack of market interest in city centre living still mean that unmet need is pushed out towards the surrounding authorities? 
Will the proposed abolition of Duty to Cooperate make dealing with unmet need more difficult across HMAs?
Will the future for strategic planning and land promotion look any different as a result?
