Thank you to all the delegates who attended our New Homes and Our Health event on Thursday 6th July in Sheffield. The presentations are now available to download below.

All of the presentations were incredibly interesting and it was eye-opening to see the challenges facing housebuilding from so many different perspectives. Thank you to all the speakers and to our Chair for the day, Chris Herring from Green Building Store.

Finally, a big thank you to our supporter Zero Carbon Yorkshire and the University of Sheffield for hosting us on the day.

A full summary of the event will be available shortly, courtesy of Nicola O’Connor, Mandarin Research.
