London’s population is set to exceed 10 million people by 2030. As demand outstrips supply, house prices and rental values are rising rapidly, making homes increasingly overcrowded and unaffordable.
A new generation is emerging for whom there seems little point in dreaming of their own London home. This event will showcase the latest thinking from the development industry and housing charities, investigating potential solutions to the challenges faced.
