As the Levelling UP and Regeneration Bill makes its way through Parliament, we are delighted to be joined for this edition of the Planning Futures Supper Club by the Baroness Neville-Rolfe DBE CME, Chair of the House of Lords Built Environment Select Committee.
The Committee recently released a report, Meeting Housing Demand, which called for the Government to urgently “address barriers to building much needed new homes”.
The Baroness has been an active contributor to House of Lords debates on a broad range of built environment issues, and will no doubt be an important voice as the Levelling Up Bill makes its way through Parliament.
Baroness Neville-Rolfe joined the House of Lords as a Conservative Peer in October 2013 and has since held several ministerial posts (at BEIS & DCMS). From December 2016 until June 2017, she was Commercial Secretary to the Treasury.
Prior to entering politics, she was an executive director on the main board of Tesco Plc and has served on the boards of several major corporations. Until 1997, she was a senior civil servant at the cabinet office.
Following the usual Supper Club Format, this event will take place over dinner at The Delaunay and is open to all Planning Futures Members on a first come, first served basis.
