Panel confirmed for 21CC Policy Forum, ‘Seeking Common Ground’
The panel has now been confirmed for the the next in the series of 21st Century Challenges: Policy Forum events. Taking place on 20 June, here at the RGS-IBG in South Kensington, London, ‘Seeking common ground?‘ will explore London’s housing crisis and how to deliver affordable, timely and sustainable homes for London’s workforce. Our expert panel will consider where homes can be delivered, in the quantities required, and whether this scale of building can still respect the need for high quality, well-designed, low carbon homes that are fit for the future. As the new Mayor of London enters his first term of office, placing housing high on his list of priorities, we will explore the challenges that he faces and how these can be met sustainably, with good quality design and construction.
Our panellists are: Rt Hon Nick Raynsford, previously MP for Greenwich and Woolwich until standing down at the last General Election, who served as both Shadow Minister and Minister with responsibility for housing, planning and construction; Barney Stringer, Director of planning and regeneration specialists Quod; Paul Cheshire, Professor of Economic Geography at LSE; and Lynne Sullivan OBE, accomplished architect and specialist in sustainable and low-energy developments.
