We are delighted to announce that our next speaker at the Capital Club will be Philip Glanville. Philip was elected Mayor of Hackney in a special borough wide election in 2016 on a promise to:
- double the amount of council homes being built
- be the first to build 500 of Sadiq’s Khan Living rent properties -where no one pays more than a third of their income in rent.
Before becoming Mayor, Philip was Hackney’s executive member for housing for six years and was responsible for Hackney’s innovative housing program that is delivering 70% affordable council housing, a mix unheard of in London.
Philip will talk about Hackney’s approach and the work they are doing to implement the Mayor’s Living rent model in the context of the wider housing affordability crisis in London.
