How do we create places where people want to live?

Thursday 5 September 2013

08:30 - 09:30 (Registration from 08:00)

NLA, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT

Co-hosted with housing association L&Q to mark their 50th year, this special NLA breakfast talk chaired by BBC News Home Editor Mark Easton will invite a panel of leading London housing providers, policy-makers and architects to debate and discuss how far, in working to meet ambitious housing targets, London is delivering places for living that meet the needs of their inhabitants – physically, socially and economically.

As London faces pressures to deliver around 36,000 homes a year, how successfully is the capital creating places where people want to live?

What are the building blocks of successful communities? How successfully are we creating places that people are proud to be a part of? And as London embarks on programmes of estate renewal, how can we avoid repeating mistakes of the past?
