This conference will build on the success of our 2016 post-Housing and Planning Act conference, which brought together the largest number of mainstream London social housing tenant representatives than had occurred in many years.
We will provide updates on our work since last year, look at changing perspectives since the Grenfell disaster, some of the key issues for tenants at the local level and links London-wide, including the draft London Housing Strategy.
