Schools and Academy Trusts no longer see their buildings and land as just learning spaces. They are assets that need to maximised to derive a value to supplement their income received from the government or through fees. With the shortage of available land in certain parts of the country, utilising surplus space or air rights for mixed use development has become more prevalent in this regard. Come and join us as our expert panel discuss:
What are the key considerations to a successful development?
How do you bring education and housing providers together to provide mutually beneficial schemes?
Are developers offering sufficient recompense for the development opportunities they are putting forward?
Do schools & trusts have the expertise to deal with complex development issues and are they getting proper advice?
Are Local Planning Authorities providing a barrier or are they defending the public realm?
How can “true” mixed-use developments transform communities and improve the everyday health issues?
