Austerity, coupled with the housing crisis, has led to a rise in public land being brought forward for development. Local and public authorities are looking to their landholdings as a solution to bridge funding gaps, either by raising capital or by creating long-term income streams. To reflect these different requirements, different PPP models have been tried and tested.

These joint venture partnerships, usually hashed by the leading stakeholders years before the first shovel is in the ground, set out the framework for how the parties will work together for the years, sometimes decades, that it takes to deliver the scheme. These agreements determine how key decisions will be taken, how land and funding will be drawn down, and how profits will be shared when the development eventually comes to life. They require long-term thinking, and a fair-minded distribution of risk, robustness to withstand the swings and roundabouts of political changes, and flexibility to respond to market changes…

This event is a unique opportunity to delve into several recent high-profile joint venture partnerships in London, and to hear from the key leaders who were instrumental in shaping those deals. They will share their insights on successes and challenges, the drivers on both sides of the negotiating table and how the negotiations achieved desired outcomes, and how these deals have in turn shaped the development over the years.
