Strength in Numbers: Funding and Building More Affordable Housing in London

This event has already taken place.

More and more Londoners are struggling to find affordable places to live, but at the same time new affordable housing provision in London has been declining. How can London make the most of its available resources to build more affordable housing?

Centre for London’s latest report, Strength in Numbers: Funding and Building More Affordable Housing in London, addresses this question by examining ways to unlock local authority funding.  As part of this, we look at enabling boroughs to work together in partnership to build more housing where this is most cost-effective, while also retaining mixed communities across the capital.

Join us at the report launch as we bring together a cross-sector audience of decision-makers for an informative and engaging debate about the role different actors should play in delivering affordable housing throughout London.  James Murray, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development, will give the opening address.

Catch up on the key talking points from the morning with our Storify post below:
