Housing Policy Forum: Seeking Common Ground?

Monday 20 June, 5.30pm – 7.15pm (followed by networking drinks)

Delivering affordable, timely and sustainable housing for London’s workforce

The Housing and Planning Bill and current Greater London Authority initiatives will, arguably, only partially address the substantial need for genuinely affordable, timely and sustainable housing – for rent and for purchase – for London’s workforce now, and in the future. The new Mayor, Local Authorities and the government will continue to face significant challenges for many years.

The panel will consider the realistic potential to meet London’s housing demand, in terms of:

  • How – the capacity to build at the required volume;
  • Where – the locational opportunities, constraints and possible priorities;
  • With due environmental care – can affordable growth be accommodated sustainably and with good quality design?
  • Can we identify common ground and what are the implications?

Full details of the event and speakers. 



Tickets: £10 non-members | £7 RGS-IBG members. The ticket price includes a complimentary drink following the panel discussion (7.15pm – 7.45pm).


  • This event welcomes all professionals in the broad field of housing, including from practice, consultancy, policy and research.
