As increasingly recognised across the main political parties and commentators, one major reason for the 'housing crisis' is that local authorities ceased their role of direct housing providers in the 1980s. Since then, the shortfall in housing provision has mirrored the scale of the former local authority contribution to the market.
This research, led by Professor Janice Morphet and Dr Ben Clifford from the Bartlett School of Planning, considers how local authorities are returning to housebuilding. It explores the role of planning in helping local authorities to deliver affordable and high quality housing. More information about the research can be found at www.rtpi.org.uk/lahousing
At the launch the research team will set out the key learning from the research, whilst Salford Mayor Paul Dennett and RTPI President Ian Tant will offer responses to it. There will also be time for questions.
This research has been part funded by RTPI, RTPI North West, RTPI West Midlands, RTPI North East, and RTPI South East.
