Monday 30 April 2012, 6.30PM to 7.30pm
Speaker: Professor Becky Tunstall, Director of the Centre for Housing Policy and Joseph Rowntree Professor of Housing Policy, University of York
Britain’s housing system is in crisis. However it was also in crisis twenty years ago when Rebecca Tunstall began working in research, and a century ago when Joseph Rowntree established his trusts in York. Britain’s residents and those who make housing policy face numerous, reoccurring and sometimes contradictory housing problems – high costs, falling prices, insecurity, immobility, low quality and rising expectations. There are also numerous tensions between the priorities of individuals, groups and society as a whole, and between the short-term and the long-term.
Join Professor Rebecca Tunstall, Joseph Rowntree Professor of Housing Policy, University of York as she explores principles we could use to identify the housing problems we should worry about the most, particularly when resources are at a premium
