Giving Local Councils More of a Say on Housing

Giving Local Councils More of a Say on Housing

According to research undertaken by the National Housing Federation and the homelessness charity Crisis, 340,000 new homes a year need to be built in England until 2031 to address the current housing backlog and future demand. However, while there is a consensus on the long-term housing supply and the need to address it, there is less agreement about building the required number of homes.

So, what are the options for building more homes? How much of a say can local people have regarding the type and design of new homes? And what role can local (parish and town) councils play in facilitating different types of new housing locally?

Hear about how local councils can get involved in different models of community house building and influence the design of new homes.

Speakers: Nic Bliss, head of policy at the Confederation of Co-operative Housing, Tom Chance, chief executive at the Community Land Trust Network and Charlie Fisher, research lead at Transition by Design.
