On Thursday 17th September, Onward held a roundtable discussion with Homes for the North to discuss the role of housing in the Levelling up agenda.
The roundtable considered the opportunities housing can provide for regional growth. There was strong consensus that there is a time limited opportunity to deliver on levelling up and therefore a need for policy makers to move from intention to implementation. Housing is essential in this mission.Not only for producing new homes, but also for creating construction and manufacturing jobs, attracting highly skilled people into lagging areas, and fostering thriving communities.
The event was held under Chatham House Rule
