To face up to the housing crisis, we need to build more than just housing units


To face up to the housing crisis, we need to build more than just housing units. We need to build homes that people feel proud to live in and that are built to last. As the reputation of housebuilders comes under ever greater scrutiny, what steps can the industry take to build new homes that are beautiful, sustainable and of a high quality? What can policy makers do to support this, such as supporting greater use of Modern Methods of Construction and introduction of the Future Homes Standard?

Nothing left to lose: reframing the housing management debate

What role can local government play in providing more housing to meet a diverse set of social needs and expectations?


There is not one housing crisis, but many different local crises of supply, affordability and provision. In areas where there is a shortage of affordable housing, how can we accommodate those in most need? Can councils work together to meet local housing demand by creating new communities? This event, promoted jointly with the Royal London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, will ask what more can housing providers and government do to provide people with the most suitable type of housing.

But can all areas really grow simultaneously, or will some inevitably get left behind?
