The subject of the debate was “How do we make enough housing?” and focussed on the issues of the delivery of housing to respond to the ever-growing needs of the capital and the nation as a whole.

The debate reinforced the need for the housing to be provided across the full spectrum of housing needs including private for sale and to rent, and affordable and intermediate. Alison Brooks addressed the issue from the architectural point of view, and explained the need for a broad vision in relation to the master plan and layout of new estates, and also emphasised the degree to which detailed design could reinforce the flexibility achievable in new homes where space was at a premium.
