What’s happening at SFHA Development Conference?
17 March, Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh.
This year’s SFHA Development Conference will focus on three projects that received funding through the Social Housing and Green Infrastructure Fund in early 2019: Meadowbank, Queensland Court and North Maryhill.
Ivan Clark from Scottish Natural Heritage will introduce the projects, this will be followed by speakers who will discuss each project, and the session will finish with time for questions. As well as hearing about the innovative work carried out through each project, delegates will also be able to access practical advice regarding how to develop in a similar way from experts and peers.
The conference workshops will look at subjects, including delivering high quality, affordable homes with minimal carbon emissions which will be led by Nick Ribbons from Zero Waste Scotland; building with nature with Dr Gemma Jerome; and create better greenspaces for nature and residents and save money, which will be led by Dr Philip Sterling from the Butterfly Conservation.
