In the latest edition of the Concilio podcast, Better Places, our Managing Director Nick Dines sat down with the Co-Chairs of the London Housing Group: Joanne Drew, Strategic Director for Housing and Regeneration at Enfield Council and Jamie Carswell, Director of Housing and Safer Communities at the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
The three discuss:
- What the Housing Crisis actually means with respect to the impact on Londoners
- What the drop off in private rented accommodation means for the London boroughs and how they manage the temporary accommodation challenge
- The human reality of families having to live in B&B’s – 1,550 across London and that 63,418 children are now in Temporary Accommodation
- The wish list they have for solutions that could be implemented
