We are delighted to welcome back the Managing Director of Bexley Co, Huw Lewis, to our Future Cities Forum on 22nd November at The Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair to be held at the Royal Arsenal.

The forum will look at regeneration and creative place-making and Huw will update the audience on the strategy that Bexley Co is developing in its forward-thinking approach to attract investment to the borough.

In our July forum at White City Place, Huw spoke about this and commented: 'The council is taking a brave stance by only wanting a 7% return on its development investments - compared to a typical 15% target for private sector investors. This gives us an opportunity to take advantage of the low land values, through Bexley Co, and use an interventionist approach to create high quality housing that is affordable for residents.'
