The RTPI-CIH Planning for Housing Network is delightted to host the launch of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation's latest research.
Housing and planning policy can play a key role in reducing the risk of poverty or mitigating the experiences of households in poverty. Yet to date there has been no comprehensive review of how city regional institutions in England - Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and combined authorities - can use new 'freedoms and flexibilities' to tackle poverty through interventions around housing and planning.
The JRF research draws on documentary evidence as well as interviews and workshops with stakeholders in city regions to identify good practice and what more could be done through housing and planning policy to reduce or mitigate poverty.
