SDS (Shelton Development Services), the software specialists in the housing industry, have secured Bill Randall as the keynote speaker at their Local Authority seminar in Birmingham on 4th June.

The free seminar, New Council Homes, Emerging Best Practice, will hear the views of one of the housing industry’s most respected and experienced figures.

Now that many councils have started building again, Randall will be considering what’s happened so far and what’s setting the standard for continuing best practice. “Brighton’s a crowded city of 273,000 people with a housing register with nearly 19,000 names on it,” he says.

“I’ll be looking at the issues raised by Brighton City Council’s council house building programme – local consultation, funding, working with planners, the council staff’s capacity to sustain the programme, and procurement. I’ll also discuss funding partnerships with adult and social care services and with specialist housing associations.”

Randall has been writing about housing and communities since the 1970s and is currently Chair of both Housing and the Strategic Housing Partnership on Brighton and Hove City Council. He’s also a former Chairman of Shelter’s National Housing Aid Trust.

SDS Chief Executive, Phil Shelton, says: “Bill’s reputation goes before him and we’re really happy he’s our keynote speaker at our Local Authorities Seminar in Birmingham. He has enormous experience of housing in the public sector and he’s a deep, original thinker, so he’s bound to provide some thought-provoking insights.”
