How to fix the broken land system at the heart of our housing crisis

Event with John McDonnell, Polly Neate, Sara Mahmoud, Beth Stratford

Please join us for the launch of the New Economics Foundation’s major new report into the broken land system. The report showcases new research revealing how high land values both drive the housing crisis, and put up significant barriers to any attempts to solve it. Join us to discuss one of the major factors behind the growing housing disaster in the UK — unaffordable, inflated land values — and explore vital first steps to ensure that land is used for the benefit of everyone

Confirmed speakers include:

Rt Hon John McDonnell MP (Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer)

Polly Neate (CEO, Shelter)

Sara Mahmoud (Senior Economist, New Economics Foundation)

Beth Stratford (housing and land economist, co-founder of the London Renters Union)
