Can Britain fix its housing crisis?
The Government has announced several new policies to revolutionise how we build communities in the future, as part of its ‘levelling up’ agenda aiming to fix regional inequalities.
Its controversial ‘Planning for the Future’ white paper is currently being consulted on, and the long-awaited Social Housing White Paper expected to be published imminently – but are the proposed reforms enough to solve the crisis?
The webinar ‘Future Planning for the Built Environment’ (hosted by LGIU & Vuelio) explores the challenges housing and planning sectors are facing. Leading the discussion will be Dr Jonathan Carr-West, Chief Executive of LGIU; Baroness Kath Pinnock, Liberal Democrat spokesperson for Communities and Local Government in the House of Lords; Cllr Bridget Smith, Leader of South Cambridgeshire District Council; Cllr Alex Hollingsworth, Cabinet member for Planning and Housing Delivery, Oxford City Council; and Phil Hutton, Head of Product and Strategy at Idox, who will talk us through the proposed changes and share their thoughts on what we need to do in order to deliver more houses, rejuvenate local economies and strengthen our communities.
Join us live on 27 October at 11am to hear our panel of leading sector voices unpick this autumn’s policy challenges and to learn how successful stakeholder engagement can inform the debate around the reforms.
