Solving the UK’s housing crisis is the theme of the Yorkshire and Humber Housing Debate 2014.
This year’s event, co-organised by the regional branches of the LI, RIBA, RTPI, RICS and ICE, takes place at The Rose Bowl in Leeds on Tuesday 10 June.
Its theme is the motion: ‘This House believes that in order to solve England’s housing crisis we need to build on greenfield sites’, an emotive topic that should spark healthy debate.
Speakers in favour of the motion include Philip Barnes, from Barratt plc, and Andrew Whitaker from the Home Builders Federation. Those against include Chris Brown of Igloo Regeneration and Rachael Unsworth, head of geography at the University of Leeds.
Last year’s debate on HS2 was well attended with LI president Sue Ilman among the 180-plus attendees.
