From ‘eco-towns’ to redeveloped brownfield sites, are the UK government's plans really able to address the chronic housing shortage? Or are the environmental concerns influencing housing policy actually inhibiting development and construction? Do we need to rethink our priorities? If so, should we unbuckle the green belt and let the developers build? Or is ‘concreting over the countryside’ too high a price to pay?
Speakers include author Tristram Hunt, Paul Miner of the Campaign to Protect Rural England, architecture writer Penny Lewis, and urban developer Michael Owens.

Tickets: £10 individual rate, £30 institutional rate
