Exclusive communities and anti-social housing: the failures of mixed community development: Fifth seminar in the ESRC Seminar Series on Marketplace Exclusion: Representations, Resistances and ResponsesApr 21, 2015
This seminar looked at the ways in which exclusion from the housing market is tackled in England and how successful the mixed communities policy has been. It reflected on the experiences of those excluded from the housing market, both in the UK and internationally.
The Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research has learnt with great sadness of the death of Alan Holmans. Alan had a long and distinguished relationship with CCHPR. He will be greatly missed. This is an appreciation of Alan by two close colleagues; Christine Whitehead and Peter Williams. It also includes quotes from others who worked with Alan throughout his career.
Researchers from the CCHPR were commissioned by the UK Government’s Better Regulation Delivery Office to carry out a project examining attitudes to data sharing amongst regulators. The final report, now published, contains a number of organisational, legal and technical recommendations.
This annual compilation of housing statistics and commentary has just been published with two important contributions co-authored by Peter Williams, one on welfare reform and housing, the other on housing’s impact on inequality.
The Investment Property Forum (IPF) commissioned CCHPR to investigate whether institutional investors could be attracted to expand the social housing sector in the UK. The final report was published in February 2015 on the IPF website.
