With reports by Savills that London’s new housebuilding will reach record levels in 2017 but then begin to slow, we explore what options are left to build the homes London needs. Alongside the Mayor’s aim to “boost the overall supply” of new and affordable housing by making the planning system clearer, quicker and more consistent, this workshop will concentrate on London’s Housing & Viability SPG, understanding and assessing a viability appraisal and learning fact from fiction. Not to be missed.
