Bradford Property Forum

Bradford Chamber Property Forum

The forum meets quarterly to provide both a networking platform and an information-sharing opportunity for organisations connected through this sector.

The group hears from speakers on, for example, planning issues, regeneration initiatives and land/housing problems and solutions.  Sub-sectors that attend the (usually breakfast) events include surveyors, agents, engineers, architects, developers and planners.

Bradford Council and local housing associations also join in, with councillors and supporting officers invited along to speak or field questions as and when appropriate.  Recent issues discussed include: employment land allocations, flooding, city regeneration and housing needs.
