Planners and experts in the field, including the Chartered Institute of Housing, the National Housing Federation, the Department for Communities and Local Government and the University of York , will speak at the events, with workshops, visits to completed schemes and official openings also taking place. A further 100 affordable homes are scheduled for completion this year.
