    Seminar: 10:30 - 13:30 followed by networking lunch

    The current economic climate poses a challenge for public bodies as they must find new ways of generating income to support service delivery and investment needs, often through partnering with the private sector.  This seminar will provide an in-depth briefing on how Joint Ventures can be used to optimise the delivery of housing and socio-economic outputs whilst at the same time maximising financial returns for landowners seeking regeneration and development partnerships with public and/or private sector partners. We will explore both how to select the best type of Joint Venture Vehicle and Partner for your particular circumstances and how to structure the relationship for effective risk management and maximum reward.

    Key Topics

    • Site assembly – who should purchase the land / assemble the site?
    • Public Sector investment – equity, debt and grant funding
    • Public Sector returns – capital receipts and income generation
    • Public benefits – public realm, social housing, regeneration
    • Corporate structures
    • Procurement considerations – can you appoint your development partner without competition?
    • Joint Ventures vs more traditional models for land development
    • Partnering between local authorities and housing associations
