creating a liveable city for a changing population
Creating a liveable city for a changing population
  • Looking at:
    • Housing the changing population;
    • Balancing resources spent on houses with others e.g. transport, open space;
    • Distributing and working together across London – at different scales.

housing delivery challenges

Housing delivery challenges

These three key issues impact on each other in a multitude of ways (e.g. a failure to deliver the required quantum can result in decreased affordability or a drive for affordability might result in lower quality)

3 key Issues:

Quantum – building enough housing for a growing population

Affordability – building housing that is within the reach of all

Quality – building housing that allows its occupiers a good quality of life

  • Other pressures:
  • Competing land uses
  • Finance
  • Infrastructure/transport funding requirements
  • Sustainability
  • Policy
objectives to explore
Objectives to Explore
  • What implications do planning policy interventions and development economics have for emerging patterns of (residential) development in London?
  • How can the 3 key issues be balanced to achieve adequate housing for Londoners?
  • Should/can one of these issues be prioritised over the other two? What role can the built environment professions play in negotiation and mediation?
  • How is the market responding to the challenges of housing delivery? Is regularisation necessary in helping to solve these problems?
  • How have policy-makers responded to these challenges?
  • What more can be done? Are there possible changes outside of spatial planning? Are there any interventions that can take place outside of London’s administrative boundaries?
  • What are the impacts of the challenges faced in London(’s housing market) on its ability achieve inclusive and sustainable growth?
