The Barker Review and London

DATE: 14 February 2006
TIME: 2-5.30pm 
VENUE: R505, Lionel Robbins Building, LSE, Portugal Street, London

The Barker Review on the lack of supply and responsiveness of housing in the UK was published in 2004. 

LSE London will be hosting a seminar on The Barker Review and London on Tuesday 14 February at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). 

The core topics to be discussed are first how the Barker agenda is working for London and second how London and particularly London government can respond to ensure more market and affordable housing is made available.

The review's author, Kate Barker, will present her views on progress in achieving her agenda; followed by Christine Whitehead, professor of housing economics at LSE, on the challenges for London. Neale Coleman, the mayor of London's senior policy adviser on housing, will then speak about the ways in which changes in London's governance can support housing objectives more effectively, and David Orr, chief executive of the National Housing Federation, will talk specifically about affordable housing.
