Have your say on the housing white paper

Tuesday 21 February 2017



Housing minister Gavin Barwell is inviting housing professionals to join him to share their views on the housing white paper at a series of regional events.

He will be attending a series of events from Monday, February 20, to Monday, March 6.

Mr Barwell said: "The challenge of increasing supply cannot be met by government alone."

"That is why I want to hear from a wide range of stakeholders - councillors, local authority planning and housing officers, large and small developers, housing associations, estate agents, letting agents and others - about what they think about the white paper and how we can work together to fix our broken housing market.

"To that end I am going to spend the next couple of weeks travelling around the country trying to hear from as many housing and planning professionals as possible."

The events are taking place as follows:


- London, hosted by GLA, on Monday 20 February, 6.30pm to 8pm.

- Birmingham, jointly hosted by CIH and HouseMark, on Tuesday 21 February, 9.45am to 11.15am.

- Manchester, hosted by NHF, on Tuesday 21 February, 2pm to 3.30pm.

- Cambridge, hosted by Cambridge City Council, on Wednesday 22 February, 3pm to 4.30pm.

- York, hosted by York City Council, on Friday 24 February, 9.30am to 11am.

- Nottingham, hosted by the HCA, on Friday 24 February, 2pm to 3.30pm.
