It's not a new subject and it's not one to solve easily: How to make high-quality, sustainable and healthy homes attainable to the average citizen in the country. Elsewhere, we've discussed the matter with clarity that a level playing field is required, i.e. raising the bar for all housing developers, and that the emphasis is on the affordability of quality homes, not on the question of how to build these.
For WoodFest Reading, we have teamed up with Kiss House to discuss how the new generation of purpose driven developers and manufacturers can drive this agenda forward. Join the discussion on 3rd July at Spaces Reading and help push the envelop!
This event brings together people from the new wave of purposeful organisations in UK housing to talk about their approaches to make quality homes accessible and why it matters.
The format will be an interactive panel discussion with plenty of opportunity to add your input and critical questions. Panellists include:
