The latest APSE Energy event will look at a housing and planning related issues and how Cherwell District Council are addressing this agenda. It is taking place at the John Paul II Centre in Bicester.
You will see there are 3 briefing workshops planned at 11:50am. These workshops are aimed at going into further detail and discussion on the subjects noted. Please can you specify the workshop you will be attending.
There remains a pressing need for the delivery of adequate numbers of homes across the UK. This has been the case for many years although housing has been rising up the political agenda in recent years and there is a need for 300,000 homes across England, 36,000in Scotland and 14,000 in Wales. We have been unable to build these kind of numbers of new homes which is why all approaches need to be considered including options for self-build and council house building. Equally we cannot to build homes without any consideration of sustainability issues and we must be as concerned with low carbon when building homes as we are with the numbers built. This event will provide an opportunity to hear from officers at Cherwell District Council, an area with a heavy demand for new homes, and hear about their experiences when supporting the growth of Bicester, promoting new housing, ensuring a low carbon approach and enabling self-build.
There will also be a presentation on climate emergency declarations and the type of issues to be considered when taking them forward and how they link to the housing and planning agenda.
This event is free for APSE Energy members but a charge (of £50) will be made to anyone who books a place but does not attend.
