‘Making Room: How do we create a city that works for modest earners?’  

 Centre for London and the City of London Corporation Seminar

 Tuesday 2 December. 6.30-7.45pm

Livery Hall, Guildhall, London, EC2V, 7HH 

Centre for London’s recent report, Hollow Promise: How London fails people on modest incomes and what should be done about it, addresses the pressures on London’s low to middle earners, who find themselves increasingly squeezed between declining wages and rising costs – especially housing costs.

The seminar will ask what London can do to help this group, and in particular,

– How we can improve the housing offer the capital makes to them

– How can we build the kinds of homes they need at prices that they can afford?

Speakers include: Charles Leadbeater, the report’s lead author; Claire Kober (Leader of Haringey Council); Pat Hayes (Executive Director of Regeneration and Housing, Ealing Council); Robert Evans (Partner, Argent LLP); Mark Boleat (Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee, City of London) and representatives from housing associations and developers.

There will be an opportunity to put questions to the panel.

If you wish to attend, please RSVP to no later than Friday 28 November. Places will be confirmed on a first come first served basis.

 The evening will end with a reception  7.45-8.30pm
