STOPPED: Public Attitudes to Housing Developments

This event has already taken place.

London needs to build 500,000 homes over the next 10 years, and the same again in the following decade. But to date, the expansion of London’s housing market has been slow and patchy. Available sites are being redeveloped at high densities, while the majority of the city remains low-to medium in density.

It is assumed, and anecdotal evidence suggests, that local people and their elected representatives will oppose new developments in their neighbourhoods.

Our latest research project, STOPPED: Public Attitudes to Housing Developments, looks at seven specific types of public concern around urban change in London, and offers solutions that address these issues head on.

Join us and an expert panel on Wednesday 20 July when we’ll be presenting new insight into how concerns vary between Londoners of different neighbourhoods, housing tenures and demographic groups, and exploring how the housing crisis affects Londoners’ opposition to new developments.

This is a public event, free to attend.  Register below.
