TCPA-APSE research 2022 – online launch

Virtual Event Virtual Event

24th May, 2022 : 10:30 am 12:00 pm

APSE and TCPA are hosting the launch of the their eighth joint-publication on research into housing and place-making. Over the years, this series has charted the housing crisis and provided recommendations to local and national government on how to create high-quality places and homes, based on original survey data, case studies, and expert interviews.

This year’s report looks at the role of local authorities in relation to planning, housing and climate change. It highlights important work already being undertaken by local authorities and hopes to inspire further action from local authorities. However, as the Net Zero Strategy recognises, significant barriers remain. This report seeks, therefore, to better understand some of those barriers and makes recommendations about how they could be overcome.

The report includes the results of a UK-wide local authority survey, as well as case studies of successful initiatives. As well as drawing on the analysis of that survey, during the session we will discuss the key barriers councils face, and hear the views of expert panellists.
