Housing and unmet need has once again hit the headlines and lit political touch papers this month, following the government’s White Paper (Planning for the Future) proposals for centrally established housing targets. For our new term, we convened a statistician - Dan Usher, Barton Willmore, political and planning lobbyists - Catriona Riddell, Catriona Riddell Associates and Jonathan Werran, Localis, a legal wrangler - Zack Simons, Landmark Chambers and importantly a practitioner Iain Painting, Barton Willmore, to discuss the challenge and realistic routes for addressing it on this podcast. We discussed the need and challenge of this need number, it’s central role in this new system, and the politics that influence it. Listen in to hear our conclusions on the role this number plays and how it may be better utilised as a stick and carrot in planning and importantly economic recovery.
