13,000 New Homes for Brighton and Hove – What, Where, How?
November 21 at 7:00 pmFree of charge
We all know that there is a housing crisis. The city plan identifies sites for 13,000 new homes. The likely need is well over twice that number. This raises some big questions.
What sort of homes do we need to build? Where can these new homes be built? How can land, finance and ambition be brought together to get development moving?
A panel of expert speakers will help us try to find answers. There will be plenty of time for comments and questions from the audience.
Speakers will include,
Andy Winter, chief executive of Brighton Housing Trust, and committed campaigner for action to address both the causes and the results of homelessness
Liz Hobden, the Council’s Head of Planning and one of the authors of the City Plan.
Claire Bennie, architect and former Development Director of the Peabody Group, one of the major housing associations in London and the south-east.
The event will be chaired by Bill Randall, housing journalist and former chair of the Council’s Housing Committee.
This event is free of charge and open to everyone, There is no need to book
