Torus explores the future of housing at MIPIM UK

Torus group chief executive Steve Coffey

Torus group chief executive Steve Coffey will be exploring the future of housing in the Liverpool City Region at MIPIM UK this week.

Alongside a panel of notable city leaders including Metro Mayor Steve Rotherham, Coffey will be looking to drive the discussion on the challenges of supply and demand and the need for new, more efficient housing solutions.

In particular, the panel will reflect on the requirement from government to create 300,000 new homes across the UK and how the region should collaborate to deliver against these targets.

An ambitious growth and regeneration group, with a focus on both the social and built environment, Torus is Liverpool City Region’s largest provider of affordable homes and a key strategic partner of Homes England.

The group has already committed to delivering more than 1,000 homes a year, meeting much needed demand for a wider choice of housing solutions across the North West. Steve Coffey said:

“For large scale change to happen, we recognise the need to partner with other development experts from around the region and that’s where MIPIM UK comes in.

“We’re looking forward to meeting and sharing ideas, looking beyond traditional methods of construction to accelerate our vision of growing stronger communities.”

MIPIM brings together high-level representatives from the public and private sector, strengthening relationships and acting as one with a shared vision based around opportunity, growth and improvement.
