EVENT: Wealth Investment and the London Property Market

Open invitation to the following academic seminar

Wealth investment and the London property market

How does wealth investment affect what gets built and for whom?

Is wealth investment adding to the housing crisis through ‘buy to leave’?

What policy approach should the GLA Mayor-elect in May 2020 take to the matter?

Action on Empty Homes is issuing an open invitation to academics to attend a seminar focused on the impact of wealth investment in the London property market at a time of a deepening housing crisis.

Date   Thursday, 10 October 2019

Time  10:00 to 13:00

Venue Voluntary Action Islington, The Seminar Room, 200a Pentonville Road, London N1 9JP

There will be three short contributions to get the conversation started and then plenty of time for discussion about the core issues.

Contributions from:

Dr Rex A McKenzie, Senior Lecturer in Economics, Kingston University, London.

Professor Rowland Atkinson, Research Chair in Inclusive Societies, Urban Studies and Planning, The University of Sheffield.

Dr Alison Wallace, Research Fellow, Centre for Housing Policy, University of York.

This event is part of a project that aims to develop a publication and policy statements about wealth investment and ‘buy to leave’ in London property that can be fed into the upcoming GLA elections and Mayoral campaign.
