Resident Empowered Council Housing
Tue 17th November 2020
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Local authorities in London are building council homes on a scale not seen for over 30 years. Whether large-scale estate regeneration or smaller infill projects, the way today’s council homes are owned and managed will have a lasting impact on the lives of the communities they house.
From co-produced regeneration to long-term tenant management and ownership, this session examines existing approaches and future opportunities for resident empowered council housing.
As part of the Doing Housing Differently discussion series, this session explores opportunities for community led approaches to empower social housing tenants and deliver sustainable housing models for London’s councils, and ask:
- How are communities and councils thinking differently about resident representation and control in contemporary council housing?
- What benefits does a community led approach to council housing bring to both tenants and social housing landlords?
- What does a community led approach look like in a mixed tenure, multi-landlord development?
