Plantech: Housing Monitoring Show and Tell

DATE : 10 June 2020
LOCATION : Webinar
START TIME : 10:00 am END TIME : 11:00 am

This show and tell will show-case the work CPC have been undertaking as part of the GovTech catalyst challenge to explore the automation of housing monitoring in LB Waltham Forest and how this could accelerate the delivery of much needed new homes.

Housing Monitoring is a key part of a plan led system, and is paramount to understand whether policies, interventions and investments in the market have had the impact intended. Yet currently it is often undervalued, under-resourced and characterised by resource intensive processes such as visiting sites on a bus or bike to check if homes have been built.

Join us for our upcoming webinar where we, together with LB Waltham Forest will examine the key challenges with housing monitoring today, and show case the outcome of work to explore automating the housing monitoring process in the borough; exploring how blending different council owned data sets, and external data sets and linking them in new ways could transform this process.
