Holyrood Communications Ltd - The future of Housing in Scotland - 3rd Annual Holyrood Housing Conference 

Holyrood magazine is excited to be staging its 3rd annual Housing Conference, the Future of Housing in Scotland, in Glasgow on 27 March.
2007 brings considerable challenges for those involved in the housing sector in Scotland with green issues forcing their way into the public consciousness. Communities Scotland recently launched a consultation on raising green standards in social housing and published The Sustainable Housing Design Guide for Scotland. Coming hot on the heels of the Chancellor’s desire for a new generation of zero-carbon homes, as stated in the Pre-Budget Report, it appears that housing development and design could find itself at the forefront of a battle to redress climate change, which has huge implications for housing providers, builders, developers and designers.
This one day conference provides an ideal forum to be involved in discussions relating to green standards, eco-homes and zero-carbon housing.
By attending this conference you will:
• Learn about the financial implications of zero carbon housing;
• Listen to ideas on new techniques in the architecture and design of eco-homes;
• Examine the policy on sustainable development in social housing; and
• Hear about the successful implementation of eco-homes in social housing projects.
The Future for Housing in Scotland conference will examine these and other subjects with specialist speakers from many different fields of expertise including:
• Councillor Ewan Aitken, Leader, The City of Edinburgh Council
• Raymond Young OBE, Chair, Architecture + Design Scotland
• Jacqui Watt, Chief Executive, Scottish Federation of Housing Associations
• Grant Hodges, Partner in Public Private Advisory, PriceWaterhouseCoopers
• Pierre DeFence, Technical Manager, Knowes Housing Association
• Nick Fletcher, Policy & Public Affairs Officer, Chartered Institute of Housing
• Archie Stoddart, Director, Shelter Scotland
• Jim Parker, Chairman, National Landlords Association
• Tony O’Sullivan, Director, Newhaven Research
• Jennifer Wallace, Policy Manager - Housing, Education & Local Government, Scottish Consumer Council
• Duncan Osler, Partner, MacRoberts
The conference will also focus on other leading issues for housing in Scotland including:
• Examination and guidance on the implementation of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2006; and
• The challenges ahead for affordable social housing.
