Castle Debates: How to meet the need for more housing without environmental damage

Our Innovation Director, Dr Paul Ellis, will be speaking at the next free Castle Debate event on 9th February in London. This event will discuss ‘How to meet the need for more housing without environmental damage’.

To accommodate the growing population the UK needs to build an additional 4,000,000 new homes by 2037, increasing our current housing stock from 26,500,000 to 30,500,000. Will the UK’s natural environment be adequately protected against housing and infrastructure development? Will the new homes be affordable? Will the quality of life of millions of people be unduly affected by urban congestion, poor air quality and other environmental problems associated with over-development?

Other speakers include:

  • Stephen Sykes, Partner Castle Debates
  • John Pugh-Smith, Barrister, 39 Essex Chambers
  • Peter Sharratt, Visiting Professor, University of Westminster
