New Housing: Responding to Growth Network

Houses with church at centreWe believe in building strong communities and bringing people together.

We want to influence public policy to encourage best practice in the planning of housing developments.

Our “Responding to Growth” network of planners, developers, church leaders and those involved in the construction industry meets three times a year on Zoom to discuss the latest policies and research in new housing and to apply that knowledge in their work.

We’d love for you to be part of that network. Find recordings of our latest three meetings below.

A programme of events for 2021 will be available shortly. Register your interest here.
