The RICS Hull and East Yorkshire Local Association are hosting an event at The Deep in Hull to update local property professionals with the latest news and legislation that affects the roles of those working in the industry. The event on 24 September also includes a visit around the tourist attraction and lunch.

Updates on three subjects will be provided at the networking and learning event; Ian Streets from About Access will discuss the Equalities Act (DDA) and update on access in the built environment – who is a disabled person?, discrimination and physical features.

Martin Sugden is the technical and operations manager at Gilsen Water. He will cover Legionella and the background of the disease, its causes, how to control it and the duties of responsible persons.

Chartered Surveyor, David Hornsby will provide a talk about historic buildings and the best ways to inspect them using examples from Beverley and the surrounding area. He will also share current research that is going on in the town which is funded by Historic England (English Heritage), recording and dating timber in an attempt to establish the age of old buildings.

Simon Delaney, Partner at Delaney Marling Partnership is a member of the Hull and East Yorkshire Association and helps to organise such events. He says:

This is a very popular event, not just because of the chance to have a look around The Deep but also because the speakers are providing a valuable update for professionals working in the property and construction industry. We welcome other property professionals to attend the seminars, including surveyors, estate agents, architects, solicitors. The event will also allow for great networking opportunities between the sessions.

The added benefit for RICS members and fellow professionals attending is the contribution it makes to their Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Those operating in the property sector are required to update their training on an annual basis, as part of their professional membership. These events always offer an array of training, guidance and education in land, property and construction.

We are also fortunate to have arranged a networking lunch once the new East Riding College opens in Beverley. Local property professionals can contact me to book onto this event which will take place on 16 October 2015.

The event at The Deep will be run by RICS Hull & East Yorkshire local association, to register please email info@delaneymarlingpartnership.co.uk.
