Time: 9:30 – 10:15
Location: Microsoft Teams

With over 30 years of experience in UK public housing and regeneration, Mark Baigent (Corporate Director of Regeneration and Culture, London Borough of Redbridge) shares his insights into the impact of new building safety regulations on Planning high-rise residential developments.

Since the introduction of the Building Safety Act, the requirements on new complex and high rise residential developments have increased, adding further costs and design challenges for architects and developers. How are homebuilders adjusting to these changes in order to continue delivering at scale and pace? What does this mean for local Planning Authorities? In this Breakfast Briefing, Mark will explore some case study examples from Redbridge in London as well as discussing the wider implications for residential developments.

Mark Baigent has extensive experience as a senior manager in local authorities, primarily in housing, property, and regeneration roles. In 2022, he transitioned back into a permanent role with Redbridge Council after seven years of interim and project consultancy work. His career highlights include leadership in housing refurbishment, new builds, estate renewal, town centre regeneration, heat networks, and innovative Council-led development companies.
