Housing in Brighton and Hove

Image of a house

  1. High demand, little space. 20,000 new homes needed. Can we reach agreement to compromise on land use? Urban fringe? Tall buildings?
  2. Supply, housing quality, support, can we agree how to balance provision?
  3. Existing separate strategies: older people, students, LGBTI etc. Should there be separate strategies, or one overarching holistic strategy?
  4. No government support/money for social rent homes. Should we turn to community housing initiatives and solutions for our new houses?

The Get Involved Group (GIG) is The Fed Centre for Independent Living's engagement project, which aims to represent the views of people with a lived experience of disability, impairment, physical or mental health issues. Carers personal assistants, families and friends are also welcome. We provide an accessible, safe space for our meetings and encourage people of all age, race, gender, sexuality, pan-disability and ethnicity to participate.
