A new vision for housing delivery

Reform is delighted to hold a breakfast panel event at which the Leader of Westminster City Council, Councillor Nickie Aiken, will set out her vision for housing delivery in the heart of London. This will be followed by an expert panel discussion that will explore the challenges and opportunities in tackling Britain’s housing crisis. Panelists include:

  • Cllr Nickie Aiken, Leader of Westminster City Council
  • Natalie Elphicke OBE, Chief Executive of The Housing & Finance Institute
  • James Cooksey, Chairman of the Westminster Property Association and Head of Central London for The Crown Estate
  • Olivia Harris, Chief Executive of Dolphin Living and member of the Westminster Property Association Housing Committee
  • Sir Edward Lister, Chairman of the Homes and Communities Agency

Since taking up the leadership of the council in January, Cllr Aiken has pledged to bring a renewed focus on providing good quality and truly affordable housing, harnessing new ideas to drive forward increases in Westminster’s stock.

At a time when national and regional government are both setting out their cases for addressing the housing shortage, this event will provide an opportunity for attendees to hear about the proactive approach being taken in Westminster. This event will examine the tools available to councils to increase supply, the reforms required to give them the additional levers, and how Westminster in particular can maximise both.
