Going to Scale: Building the homes we need

17th November 2016
  • ResPublica

Clive Betts MP, CLG Select Committee Chair, joins Stephen Hammond MP, Treasury Select Committee member, to discuss our new approach to scale up and accelerate housing delivery.

A new approach to housing can meet need around the country and close the intergenerational divide in asset ownership. Despite a concerted drive, housing starts last year remained over 50,000 short of the 200,000 needed each year to meet the one million homes target set by Parliament. ResPublica is launching Going to Scale: Building the homes we need to address this issue.

Our proposals will outline how the new Government can scale up and accelerate housing delivery to bridge the gap between current housebuilding rates and the Government’s target, and get the housing market working for the many over the long-term. Our plans set out a major long-term and returnable investment in housing that would complement the new Home Building Fund to unlock capacity in the market to deliver the homes we need.

The launch will be marked by a panel session including

  • Clive Betts MP, Chair of the Communities and Local Government Select Committee
  • Stephen Hammond MP, Treasury Select Committee
  • James Cartlidge MP, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Housing and Planning
  • Phillip Blond, Director of ResPublica

We will be joined by policy-makers, academics, consultants, journalists, influential commentators and key representatives from across the construction, development and planning sector. Please register for your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. To inquire for tickets, email events@respublica.org.uk.
