Taking place on 18th September at Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton, the event exclusively invites key decision makers from the housebuilding community to shape, debate and influence the future of the new build industry.

The debate, which is free to attend, will focus on how the housing industry can build 250,000 new homes a year and look at all aspects of planning and finance in the run up to the general election. It will see a panel of conservationists such as the Campaign to Protect Rural England and leading housebuilders and planning experts such as Peter Andrew Group Planning Director at Taylor Wimpey, to debate planning issues on both a national and local level.

The event will also bring together heads of build lending at major providers such as Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide and Royal Bank of Scotland to set the scene for the future of new build lending.

The Keynote Speech will be delivered the Shadow Housing Minister Emma Reynolds MP.

The panel discussions will be chaired by the Economics Editor of the Sunday Times, David Smith, and What House? and Showhouse Editorial Director Rupert Bates.

James Poynor, Managing Director of Countrywide Land & New Homes, said:

 “With financial and planning issues taking centre stage in the run up to the next election, now is the perfect time to gather together key decision makers from both areas of the industry to shape the future of new build.

“The interactive nature of the event is designed to give housebuilders and developers a unique platform to debate and influence these key issues. Last year’s event was a fantastic success with over 150 leading names in the new build industry coming together to dicuss the key issues that matter to their businesses. We look forward to putting on an even bigger and better event for this year.”

The Whathouse? New Homes Debate will take place at the Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton, on Thursday 18th September and is free for housebuilders to attend.
