Our recent webinar discussed the Government’s Planning for the Future White Paper, how it has been received, and what more should be done to address the housing shortage and to strengthen local communities.
Boris Johnson’s intention to ‘recreate an ownership society’ was received sceptically by our panellists who argued that the current Government was out of touch and that more powers should be handed to local government which is in a better position to understand the needs of its residents.
Our webinar panel was broadly critical of the Government’s plans, and addressed areas they believe the White Paper doesn’t adequately cover such as social and affordable housing.
Given the wide-ranging discussion on the White Paper and its proposals, the Vuelio Political Team has analysed the policy context and a summary of the webinar, drawing together local government experts, serving councillors and a member of the House of Lords. The analysis also includes tips for effective stakeholder engagement for informing the debate around the plans.
