Movers & Shakers Property Networking Forum: ‘London Housing - Facing The Challenges Head On’

Our Managing Director, Richard Mussell and Executive Director, Paul Belfield attended a vital Movers & Shakers networking event last week surrounding London’s housing challenges.

The event brought together industry figureheads to discuss how the capital can overcome the impacts of rising costs, political instability, and planning constraints. Key topics in dedicated panel sessions included routes to making existing housing stock more energy efficient, and the realities and difficulties of building new homes in London.

Paul Belfield, Executive Director at Rund commented: “It was refreshing to be part of open discussions about the real challenges facing London’s housing sector, and how we as an industry can find solutions.

“The discussions reinforced various existing concerns, including how years of underinvestment have caused a lack of housing to be built, and subsequent overcrowding in homes has led to poor conditions. Such conditions have been exacerbated by the lack of trade labour, including maintenance and repairs teams. The impacts of the cost-of-living crisis have also thrust many residents into poverty, so basic commodities like heating have become luxuries.

“Events like these are fundamental as they bring together the people who can make a difference. Working as a collaborative force is critical, as we pool different areas of expertise to tackle different strands of wider issues and ultimately, make positive, lasting changes.”

Our team regularly attends key industry events throughout the year, contributing insights from years of experience while enhancing our knowledge to ensure we continue giving clients the best quality service.
