Please join us for this seminar on property investments and the implications of the recent Faraday case

Investing in property may offer local authorities an opportunity both to generate attractive long-term income streams and to regenerate town centres and other areas. We are seeing an increasing number of local councils investing in property and it is estimated that local authorities have spent over £3.8bn on property acquisitions over the last five years.

This seminar will consider relevant guidance for local authorities in making property investments and the challenges that may arise.  In particular, we will cover:
• Incentives and powers to invest in property
• Risks including potential legal risks
• Guidance and best practice
• State aid and procurement considerations

We will also consider the procurement implications of the recent Court of Appeal judgment in the Faraday case which may affect local authorities looking to enter into development agreements.
