October 2015: Response to the London Housing Commission call for evidence.
On 9th October 2015, a special member event was held "More Homes for London" with Lord Bob Kerslake - Chair of the London Housing Commission and featuring "Superdensity: The Sequel".
Lord Bob Kerslake, chair of the London Housing Commission set out the objectives – to examine how to double housing output in London and maintain this over a period of time as if this is not addressed, there will be a serious economic impact on London’s future as a global city.
The Housing Forum’s response was linked to the fresh perspectives from architectural practices HTA, Levitt Bernstein, Pollard Thomas Edwards and PRP on how to create successful homes and places at high densities up to 350 homes per hectare at 5-8 storeys height.
Prices in London are driven up by a fundamental imbalance in supply and a whole series of initiatives is needed to address this.
