Leading figures from the North of England’s social housing industry got together for a frank discussion of the pros and cons of joint venture partnerships, courtesy of Northern Housing magazine.

Organised in association with leading law firm Anthony Collins Solicitors, this latest leaders’ roundtable was held once again at Manchester’s Albert Square Chop House. The scene was set for a frank but convivial discussion, suitably fuelled by a hearty meal.

Guests included Salford’s metro mayor, Paul Dennett. He was joined by senior executives from some of the North’s major housing associations, to consider whether joint venture partnerships with private developers have had their day.

The verdict was that they very much have a role to play in the housing sector’s work, but perhaps not so much as private developers might like. As far as the guests at the roundtable saw it, joint ventures are just one of many tools at their disposal; getting together is great, but so is being footloose.

Joint ventures are no longer the go-to form of partnership they might once have been; they’re a tool, and must be wielded appropriately.
