In this latest installment of EG Property Podcast's  Fundamentals of the Future programme, a series of listens focusing on real estate’s role in the helping solve the world’s climate crisis, EG editor Samantha McClary introduces an hour-long roundtable, hosted by Civic Engineers, that brings together a collection of experts from across the built environment to talk about the big issues real estate faces and the big solutions it can and should be coming up with.

Listen in to understand more about the need for retrofit to be a sexier word than development, the role that placemaking has in greening up our built environment and the policy changes needed to turn real estate from a polluter to a protector of the planet.

An advisory warning for listeners. This roundtable was not recorded in a studio so at times you may need to lean in a little closer to the conversation. But while the quality of sound may not always be top notch, the content most definitely is.


In the first in a new podcast series on residential law, Jess Harrold is joined by co-host Elizabeth Dwomoh, barrister at Lamb Chambers, and guest Neelam Sharma, in-house solicitor at Walsall Housing Group Ltd, to discuss the difference between a lease and a licence, and the different types of tenancies.

Together, they address the main characteristics of Rent Act 1977 tenancies, secure tenancies, assured tenancies and assured shorthold tenancies, as well as their advantages and disadvantages.

In addition, they look at key contractual terms for each type of tenancy, and some of the issues that can arise in practice.



Jess Harrold is joined by editor Sam McClary and news editor Pui-Guan Man to discuss the implications of the US Supreme Court's decision to overturn the landmark ruling in Roe v Wade and place the availability of abortions in the hands of individual states, with the possible result that more than half will outlaw them. 

Together, they share their dismay at the impact the decision will have, praise Cushman & Wakefield for being the first US-based advisory firm to pledge financial support to their affected employees, and discuss the steps that real estate should take to stand up for important rights.

In addition, they address more of the week's headlines - including a report into CVAs that offers a surprising conclusion for landlords, big news at Avison Young and a possible boost for the UK high street.

In this panel discussion, EG’s guests explore Cambridge’s position as a hub for technology and not just, as some would have it, life sciences.

Joining EG deputy editor Tim Burke to discuss what tech has done for development in Cambridge, the growth opportunities for the sector, and what the city is doing to retain and grow talent are:

  • Wei Meng, head of innovation and director of operations, TusPark Cambridge
  • James Parton, managing director, The Bradfield Centre
  • Claire Ruskin, executive director, Cambridge Network
  • Mark Taylor, director and head of business space, Cambridge, Savills

At this EG Cities Live panel discussion held in Manchester earlier this month, EG deputy editor Tim Burke and guests discuss the post-pandemic workforce and what it’s taught real estate about the outlook for offices. 

More than two years on from the first work-from-home order of the Covid-19 pandemic, business leaders are still grappling with changes to working practices and what they mean for office occupancy. Despite the best efforts of many businesses to encourage workers away from Zoom screens and back into the office, our speakers acknowledged that, across industries, the challenge is stark.

Joining the panel are:

Kirsty Black, partner, Shoosmiths
James Evans, national head of office agency, Savills
Caleb Parker, founder, Bold
Simon Bedford, partner, real assets advisory, Deloitte
Dan Hyde, development director, MEPC 

In the latest episode of On the Case, Jess Harrold is joined by Martin Garner, partner at CMS, to discuss the first disputes under the Electronic Communications Code to reach the Supreme Court:  Cornerstone Telecommunications Infrastructure Ltd v Compton Beauchamp Estates Ltd and conjoined appeals [2022] UKSC 18; [2022] PLSCS 99.

Garner explains the operation of the Code, the issues that led to the three cases concerned here, and how the Supreme Court determined the appeal.

In addition, he addresses the implications of the decision for landowners and telecoms operators, and outstanding issues under the Code that will continue to occupy the higher courts.

Jess Harrold is joined by head of special content Emily Wright and reporter Evelina Grecenko for the latest weekly round-up podcast - with a focus on talent.

Wright rounds up EG's latest Talent special, including the back-to-the-office lessons from a building tour of CBRE's revamped flagship HQ, Henrietta House... and from further afield, out in the country.

Grecenko shares what she learned from EG and Bidwells’ Creating a Scientific Superpower conference, as well as Oxford Properties' big plans for life sciences.

But when their own talents are put to the test, who will triumph in the quiz of the week?

Some three years after the government first announced it’s intention to abolish section 21 notices under a Renters’ Reform Bill, it has published it’s white paper on reform of the private rental sector.

To help explain the proposals is Eleanor Murray, partner and head of residential disputes at law firm CMS, who sets out the rationale for change, what the government is proposing as part of its “12-point plan of action” and what landlords can be thinking about now in advance of change being implemented.

In this episode of the EG Property Podcast, EG editor Samantha McClary sits down with Paul Lawrence, head of real estate at Taylor Wessing, and Dan Bayley, director in the tenant representation team at JLL.

Both are huge supporters of EG’s Future Leaders programme and both joined many others to lean in, learn and support our latest cohort at their showcase event on 9 June.

In this 40-minute listen, they talk about the importance of the programme not only for what it delivers for EG’s Future Leaders but for the messages it gives to the audience and the market as a whole.

This latest cohort was united on showing how much power and influence the real estate sector can have at effecting change and making the world a much better place.

Listen in for a run through of each of the amazing Ted-style talks. And if you’re hungry for more, make sure to head to to watch the six insightful, emotional and just quite brilliant talks in full.

Swansea council confirmed Urban Splash as its development partner on a £1bn regeneration of the city earlier this month. Here Urban Splash’s Jonathan Falkingham and David Warburton lay out their plans for a levelled-up, liveable city in what might be their biggest test to date.
