Launch event of our ARM report

With the support of the Oak Foundation, Future of London has undertaken a significant piece of research on the use and viability of the Affordable Rent Model as a means of building new affordable housing in London.  This research is now complete, and next week we are pleased to be launching the final report: ‘The Affordable Rent Model in London: Delivery, Viability, Potential’. This paper examines the use and viability of the Affordable Rent Model as a means of building new affordable housing in London. Drawing on empirical data, interviews and case studies, it investigates delivery to date, and considers emerging approaches to a programme which faces considerable challenges in London’s current housing and benefit context. The report culminates in a set of recommendations designed to inform future affordable housing programmes in the Capital.

This event is taking place on Wednesday, 19 June, with registration and light breakfast from 9:00 am, and the launch from 9.30-11. The session will feature an overview of the key findings and recommendations by research lead Andrew Heywood. and will be chaired by David Lunts, Executive Director of Housing and Land at the Greater London Authority. We will also be joined by Mark Baigent (Project Director, Housing Services, RB Greenwich) and Daniel Arnold (Senior Policy Officer, Peabody), who will add their perspectives to the report’s findings.

The event will take place at the offices of Lewis Silkin, 5 Chancery Lane, London, EC4A 1BL: http://goo.gl/maps/JMUA4
