Leading & Delivering Estate Regeneration
Guest Keynote Speakers
We are excited to announce our sixth Councils Building Homes Forum will take place on the 1st of February and focus on leading and delivering estate regeneration. The event will consist of talks from esteemed guests who have worked in regeneration in local authorities, councils, development companies and who have managed large-scale public sector regeneration projects.
The forum will consist of talks from Lord Bob Kerslake, Jackie Sadek, Barbara Brownlee and Caroline Pillay followed by round table discussions with the speakers.
Caroline has a wealth of experience in the delivery of urban regeneration projects, both as a consultant and client side. Her team provides development and project management services and a complete strategic, commercial and technical advisory service.
She has provided support to many local authorities inside and outside of London. In her career, she has worked with councils and their development teams to bring forward affordable housing schemes. Following Richard Reynolds’ decision to step down in 2020, Caroline was appointed as the new Chair at Homes for Lambeth. She is also a board member of Social Sustainable Capital and of Women In Social Housing.
Why Councils Building Homes?
In response to client feedback and in the absence of any forums targeted solely at supporting local authorities to deliver their housing development programmes, Airey Miller has established Councils Building Homes (CBH).
CBH forums bring together speakers, experts and councils from across the country to share lessons, challenges and successes on how to overcome some of the common barriers to successful programme delivery.
The Story So Far...
Since 2018 we have hosted many CBH forums in London, welcoming senior development staff from over 50 councils across the country. Our delegates have heard from speakers, experts and councils on topical issues, current regulations and research, including:
The keys to growth of development companies
Securing funding from the GLA and Homes England
Local authority programme governance
Tackling common barriers to delivery
....and much more
Attracting keynote speakers with a proven record of driving our industry forward
CBH has provided a platform for leaders from the GLA, Royal Town Planning Institute, Bristol City Council, University, College London, LB Westminster, CAST (Mark Farmer) and many others.
Supporting You Beyond the Forum
As a follow up to the success of the CBH forums Airey Miller has been delivering tailored workshops both in person and virtually for local authority participants. These provide an opportunity you to explore in more depth any of the round table discussions, or the keynote speeches most relevant and beneficial to you.
I found the event both highly informative but also inspiring in terms of achieving housing aspirations and different approaches to doing this. Thank you so much for organising and allowing me to attend.

I found the forum highly informative, supportive, creative and very worthwhile. The opportunity to discuss common issues with an experienced cohort public and private professionals was refreshing. I will certainly attend again in the future.
