London Housing Design to be discussed at ACA conference

The ACA Conference will discuss housing design issues for London.

The half-day Conference – Housing Design Guide: catalyst or obstacle to providing new homes for Londoners? – takes place on Monday 17 May, from 2pm at the Royal Society of Medicine.

The ACA has brought together the key people responsible for delivering homes for Londoners including Mark Brearley of Design for London, Julian Hart from the HCA, Paul Finch of CABE, and Andy von Bradsky of PRP to discuss and debate the impact of the new Housing Design Guide.

High on the agenda are how costs and output for residential development will be effected. The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) themselves have suggested the average cost of a home will increase by £9,895 and that up to 1,500 fewer homes will be able to be built per £1 billion spent. This special half-day briefing seeks examine the implications of the new guide and its effects on affordable housing policy after the election.
