Labour Party Conference Roundtable: Tracks and mortar – how can transport unlock more homes in cities?

This event at Labour Party Conference will focus on the role transport can play in unlocking new housing

Event starts at 8.30am on 24 September 2019 at Victoria Terrace, Grand Hotel Brighton

This policy roundtable in Brighton, in partnership with the London School of Economics, will look at the role that transport – particularly rail – can and should play to unlock new housing for cities where housing demand is highest. We will discuss funding mechanisms, planning reform, and the most efficient use of existing rail capacity in growth areas.

The event will focus on what transport providers, housebuilders, cities and central government have been doing — and need to do in future — to galvanise new homes close to transport and where it is needed most. It will be of interest to national and local politicians as well as business leaders and representative bodies and city leaders attending conference.

Speakers confirmed:

  • Professor Paul Cheshire, London School of Economics
  • Cllr Lewis Herbert, Leader of Cambridge City Council
  • Victoria Hills, Chief Executive, Royal Town Planning Association (RTPI)
  • Siobhain McDonough MP, Labour Member of Parliament for Mitcham and Morden
