Who’s it for and what’s it about?

It may be some time since your housing association or co-operative developed new houses, or you’re new to the Committee/Board and you know little about development.  Your association or Co-operative is considering some development projects, or are already in the early stages of a project.

This course will provide you with insight into the development process, explain recent changes to legislation and regulation impacting on development.
