Public meeting: Public Housing In Barnet?


BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW. The shortage of social and truly affordable housing is one of the most pressing problems facing our communities. Is council housing the answer to the crisis? What can councils do to tackle the housing shortage? What should Londoners expect? What’s the solution: housing associations? housing co-ops? mutuals? self-builds? Must regeneration be gentrification?

Come to this open forum to discuss with other members of the housing community – councillors, tenants and campaigners – possible solutions to the current housing situation and what actions can be taken next. Working in groups, this is an opportunity for you to give your views of what needs to be done and by whom.

Joining us for the discussion will be:

Nicky Gavron, Chair of Planning Committee, London Assembly

Cllr Achilleas Georgiou, Deputy Leader, Enfield Council

Cllr Ahmet Oykener, Cabinet Member for Housing, Enfield Council

Cllr James Murray, Executive Member for Housing and Development, Islington Council
