London faces an acute housing crisis. The need for solutions is intensifying, but the debate on how to tackle these challenges is becoming increasingly polarised. Ahead of the 2020 Mayoral election, our Capital Homes project seeks to revitalise the debate and build consensus around principles for intervention and sustainable solutions.
As part of our Capital Homes project we are hosting a series of roundtables on London’s key housing challenges.
This final roundtable will explore issues of finance and delivery. Discussion points will include:
- The ways that delivery can be accelerated without compromising quality.
- The mix of public and private financing which is appropriate for different types of developments.
- The role that local authorities, commercial developers, housing associations, community builders and volume house builders can play in creating a diversified housing market.
- The extent to which tax reform can help tame London’s land market.
- The portfolio of public-private partnerships and agencies that should be used to bring forward major sites.
This private event, chaired by Richard Brown, Research Director at Centre for London, will bring together experts, politicians, business, government and community leaders.
This event is invite-only. If you would like to register your interest to attend please email [email protected].
