Presenters include John Hunt from MarketNsight who will be sharing information about trends in market demographics and housing supply and Tony Perez from Opticos Design who will be sharing about Missing Middle Housing.

The Housing Summit will take place on Thursday, May 30 from 8:30am-2pm at Converse College (Barnet Room). Lunch will be provided.
