UCL Question Time: London's housing crisis

Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

Housing is one of the key issues in London’s mayoral election. Spiralling property prices, limited housing stock and a rapidly-growing population are making it increasing difficult for Londoners to find a place to live. Home ownership has become accessible only to the wealthiest, and rented accommodation is under enormous pressure, offering substandard or prohibitively expensive options that offer no long-term security.

UCL Grand Challenges and UCL Public Policy are hosting a ‘Question Time’ event on London’s housing crisis ahead of the Mayoral election, bringing together stakeholders from public policy, the private sector, NGOs and others to consider the most pressing housing issues for London and potential solutions.

The panel includes Duncan Bowie (University of Westminster), Alice Martin (new economics foundation), Austen Reid (Circle Housing), and June Barnes (Board member, Urban & Civic property developers) and will be chaired by UCL's Professor Peter Wynne Rees.
