We want to learn from the original 1901 Housing Conference and consider how we can create new places that will thrive long into the future – as Bournville does today.
The debate will be more than a ‘quick fix’ to build houses in volume. We want to learn from the experience of the Bournville Village Trust and create an action plan for future places. Today’s social, economic, health and wellbeing factors will all be debated, as will societal change and the role of policy in solving the current housing crisis.
Given the breadth of the discussions, we want to hear from people from a range of professional and academic disciplines, charities, and those with strong opinions on the debate topics.
Who's leading the debate
We are gathering people from across and beyond the housing sector to debate the wider issues around creating new places.
