Fresh Ideas for London Housing - hosted by Keir Starmer QC MP
London faces unprecedented demand for social and affordable housing. How can we house a growing population? How do we ensure that people who work in London can afford to live in London? What can be done to reduce overcrowding? These and other issues will be discussed.
Date – Friday 25th September 2015
Time – 3pm-5pm
Venue – The Bronte Room, British Library
Speakers will include;
Tom Copley AM (Labour Housing Spokesman, London Assembly)

Jim Monahan (MBH Architects)
Cllr Sarah Hayward and/or Cllr Pat Callaghan (Camden Council)
Keir Starmer said of the event: 'Housing is one of the most pressing issues facing Holborn & St Pancras and indeed the whole of London and the South-East. Since being elected, I have met with many local people who are struggling to find somewhere affordable to live. Many others live in very overcrowded conditions. I know many local people worry how their children will be able to find somewhere to live when they grow up.
I want to make sure that I have a clear line of sight on the issues and the potential solutions. For this reason, I have organised what I hope will be just the first of several meetings in which local people can come together to discuss these issues and propose new ideas.'
