This is the most poignant message emerging from our community and neighbourhood planning activities.
A major step towards ‘getting a slice of the action’ is having an ‘open book policy’ and understanding the money driving development.
VAC have invited experts from Oxford Brookes University to provide an overview of how development works. This will cover issues like:
- Land ownership and assembly, values, building costs, yield / profit.
- Market appraisal: why is an inner London neighbourhood like Somers Town so attractive?
- A ‘rough and ready reckoner’ explaining calculation on profit from different types of development and how it is divided between the parties involved.
- What’s in it for the landowner, the developer, the community.
Wednesday 19th June 7-9pm at Somers Town Community Centre.
