Welcome to Rail Stations and Property 2018



With a growing population and economy, demand for both rail travel and housing is at historic highs and continues to rise. 
The Government and authorities want more new homes to be built on railway land to tackle the housing shortage, swelling the ranks of commuters as the rail industry seeks extra capacity at stations and to unlock land value to fund infrastructure investment.

Can local authorities, the property sector and the railways work together in the face of these challenges and make new housing around rail stations work? 

The Rail Stations and Property Summit 2018 is being convened to find the answers.

  • Using railway property to unlock significant residential development

  • Explore new models for collaborative delivery

  • New funding mechanisms

  • Examine the barriers to successful high intensity development around rail hubs

  • Designing stations for future challenges and current need

Why Attend?



Why attend Rail Stations & Property 2018?



Rail Stations and Property is the leading event that unites two professional worlds.

This event identifies partnership opportunities to enable relationships between a range of organisations from Network Rail to developers, from train operators to consultants and from landowners to politicians.

Extend your professional network and gain exposure to emerging opportunities.

Insight, Expertise and Best Practice

You’ll hear from the leaders of some of the largest investment projects of our time and from local authorities and other public bodies that are putting rail stations at the heart of redevelopment and development strategies which are reshaping our cities and towns.

Collaboration and cross-disciplinary working

Delivery models are the heartbeat of successful development, from a small station enhancement to major infrastructure projects for national and international importance. Hear the experiences of those who have made cross-disciplinary and multi-agency collaboration work and the lessons learnt along the way.
