Event description

Description

On Monday, 16 October 2017, Localis will be launching our new report on disrupting the housing market. Launching the report Alok Sharma MP, Minister of State for Housing and Planning, will deliver a keynote speech. A panel discussion with questions from the audience will follow.

The report contends that policy, politics and society need to come to terms with a weakening home-owning democracy. It is something worth preserving, but this need not come at the expense of those who live, and whose home may only ever be, in the private rental sector. To these ends the report makes a suite of policy recommendations on how the state can intervene and disrupt the housing market in the interests of its users. It considers how more land can come to market for new homes where and when it is needed, and how this land can then be used more productively. It also argues for a radical shift in power towards consumers through more choice and protection in the housing market.

Panel speakers

  • Sadie Morgan, co-founder of dRMM architects and commissioner for National Infrastructure Commission

  • Liam Halligan, columnist at the Telegraph

  • Jonathan Goring, managing director at Lovell

  • Liam Booth-Smith, chief executive of Localis (chair)
