Susan Emmett

Head of Engagement, Homes England


Susan Emmett is Head of Engagement for Homes England. As part of the new Homes England strategy team, she works across the agency with the investment, land and local teams to strengthen existing partnerships, to identify new areas of business and to support new entrants to the housing industry. Her work also covers a number of cross-agency strategy areas including construction productivity and MMC.

Susan joined Homes England from Policy Exchange, a Westminster think tank, where she was Head of Housing and Urban Regeneration at Policy Exchange. Whilst her work covered a broad range of housing, development and placemaking related subjects, the bulk of her research focused on opportunities for mixed use development on brownfield sites.

Before that Susan was a Director in the Savills Research team where she built up a suite of market-focused publications covering development, housing, land and planning. Earlier in her career, Susan was a national newspaper journalist at The Times, where she launched Bricks and Mortar, the property section, in 2002.
