Following the publication of the Mayor of London’s Housing Strategy in September, this seminar was an opportunity to assess policy priorities for housing in London and South-East England. Delegates considered proposals set out in the strategy, including plans for 90,000 new homes to rent or buy in the Capital by 2021, and a £250m fund to allow City Hall to buy and prepare land before selling it to house builders.
There was also discussion on the impact of national policy on housing in London and the South-East, following the introduction of a Draft Tenants' Fees Bill - and commitment to promoting fairness and transparency in the housing market in the Queen’s Speech.
Further sessions focused on key issues in the private rented sector, and the future for social housing, as the public inquiry opened into the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
