Tackling inequality, homelessness, housing shortages and poverty in city regeneration projects.
City leaders seeking to improve their cities through regeneration or otherwise must now consider environmental, social and governance issues in their planning. Key considerations include creating or building on economic prosperity, dealing with environmental concerns such as resilience and decarbonisation and the consideration of social issues.
Such social issues include fixing the housing crisis, tackling rising homelessness cases, driving equality into the areas that need it most, as well as improving social mobility and finding ways to overcome poverty and the rising costs of living for people. This is no easy task especially as, in some cases, their are conflicting interests. For example, City the need to build low-carbon, sustainable homes can often delay progress in building social housing due to increased costs and time.
