29 November 2012

Urban Lab Steering Committee member and Bartlett School of Planning academic Michael Edwards participated in this week's  crucial Examination in Public (EiP) on the Mayor's Revised Early Minor Alterations to the London Plan

The debate was particularly focused on the Mayor's switch of emphasis, away from housing those in the greatest need (who may be able to afford social housing rent but not "affordable rent" at 65-80% of local market rents) towards those higher up the income scale.
