Thu 4 June: Legatum Institute: "London Needs to Build the Right Housing—Not Just More Housing"

"The Legatum Institute and Create Streets will host a livestreamed panel with Evan Davis, housing experts and some of London's prospective mayoral candidates, as they discuss how to solve the capital's housing crisis and boost well-being by building homes people want to live in"

"In some ways the solution to the housing crisis is easy: build more, lots more. But, this has never been politically easy—hence the plethora of programmes to boost demand not supply.

"So the debate moves on to: how do we build homes that people love so that unlocking that supply becomes politically easier? Do we need to regulate what we build based on people’s preferences, with less focus on how we build it? And is there a way to solve London’s housing crisis without the controversy that we are currently creating?
