Making Room: How do we create a city that works for modest earners?

This event has already taken place.

A public seminar hosted by Centre for London and the City of London Corporation.

Centre for London’s recent report, Hollow Promise: How London fails people on modest incomes and what should be done about it, addressed the pressures on London’s low to middle earners, who find themselves increasingly squeezed between declining wages and rising costs – especially housing costs.

The seminar will ask what London can do to help this group, and in particular, how we can improve the housing offer the capital makes to them. How can we build the kinds of homes they need at prices that they can afford?
