24th February, 2022 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am

As part of the TCPA New Communities Group series, this webinar will explore how to deliver schools in large-scale new communities, covering issues such as what type of facilities are needed, negotiating provision, and how to justify need. We will hear from the Department for Education who will outline their guidance on delivering schools to support housing growth, including securing developer contributions. We will also have presentations on local authority and private sector case studies of places where new schools have been successfully delivered.
