Housing and the localism agenda: Why our homes must be at the heart of devolution

At our event at Conservative Party Conference we'll explore how much power the government should give away on housing.

As the Government prepares to devolve power to city regions, and the next Mayor of London will be under huge pressure to fix the housing crisis, what policies should be decided at the local level? How can local government be better equipped to increase housing supply, and what should they be able to do to help the growing private renter population?
