Your speaker:  David Rudlin, URBED

For the first time in years housing has been an election issue – we need to be building around 250,000 new homes every year and are falling short by around 100,000. For some towns this is a huge problem as they struggle to find additional land for housing in the face of local opposition. Others, especially the large cities, see it as an opportunity to grow their economy and population.

Since winning the Wolfson Economics prize last year David Rudlin of URBED has been working with Sheffield Council to explore the implications of housing growth to create an more successful, sustainable conurbation. He will describe this work and the implications for other cities.
