NLA roundtable discussion on the densification of London’s suburbs.

Alison Brooks takes part in the NLA roundtable discussion, co-hosted by HTA Design LLP, that will bring together a select group of developers, architects, housing experts, planners and Local Authorities to examine the capacity of suburban London for solving this problem.

As a result 80% of what is on offer in the capital is affordable to only 20% of the population. Could the densification of the suburbs form part of the solution to London’s housing crisis?”
