The Government has published a consultation on plans to change the way housing targets are calculated - read CPRE's initial thoughts.

Thursday 23 March
Oxford Brookes University, Headington Campus, London Road

Organised by Oxfordshire Community Land Trust and CPRE Oxfordshire

The publication of the Government’s long-awaited Housing White Paper provided an opportunity for the many groups and individuals with an interest in promoting affordable housing in Oxfordshire to come together to share responses and jointly to consider ways forward.

The White Paper itself contains a range of proposals which the government hopes will boost affordable housing supply. Consultation on some of these is open until May 2. But these are not the only possible initiatives and our hope was that a discussion of the White Paper couild spark wider debates and enable us to share information and co-ordinate activities.

With this in mind, Oxfordshire Community Land Trust and the Oxfordshire Branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England brought together this informal discussion to consider:

a) If/how the White Paper addresses the need for permanently affordable housing?
b) What gaps/areas of concern are there?
c) What response should we feed back to government?
d) The opportunities that already exist to address the issue – in particular, the Community-Led Housing Fund
e) Other ideas for meeting the gaps
f) If/how we might work more closely together on these issues in the future.
