New London Architecture

Unlocking the potential of small sites

Talk

Friday 26 February 2021
08:30 - 09:30

This Breakfast Talk explores the current and potential role of small sites in the delivery of new homes and affordable housing.
To deliver the quantity of housing Londoners need, sites of varying scale and complexity need to be developed. The specificity of small sites means they are often overlooked by larger developers, calling for the expertise of SME developers and architects to overcome the challenges of problematic sites, with further delays and complications found in the compliance with the planning system. 

Recent research from Pocket Living and Lichfields analyses how small sites can play a more meaningful role in housing delivery and considers the journey of small site developments through planning and the constraints and challenges they encounter. 
 
This Breakfast Talk explores the role of small sites in the delivery of new homes and affordable housing. What are the constraints and challenges? How can we unlock land for housing more efficiently and streamline the process for SME developers in order to speed up the delivery of quality homes?
