London Housing Panel Community Conversations

In summer 2023, the London Housing Panel supported a series of ten community conversations with people whose voices are not heard in discussions about housing and planning.

The conversations were hosted by diverse members of the Panel and its community partners. In autumn 2023 the hosts came together to share and discuss their conversations and identify common themes. This is a report about what people said in their community conversation and what they would like to see change.

There are two reports: a findings report which sets out the key findings from these conversations, and a recommendations report.

Key findings

Four themes stood out across the convesrsations:

  1. Safety
  2. Accessibility
  3. Homes over the course of our lives
  4. The need for a flexible and inclusive planning system
