The 2022 LTF conference, held with the London Federation of Housing Co-ops and the National Federation of TMOs, focused on development and growth in London over the last ten years and on the changes that we as social housing tenants may want or need over the next ten years.

The morning session started with a panel of four social housing tenants speaking about existing large-scale developments in London.

Pat Turnbull and Niall Mulholland aptly spoke about their experiences of the London Legacy Development Corporation area, as this year (2022), is 10 years since Olympic Games.

Sharon Tomlin spoke about tenant involvement in, and some of the issues and concerns relating particularly to the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation.

Richard Lee provided an overview of the 47 opportunity areas in London and their connections to transport links, housing zones and regeneration in London.

You can listen to the audio recordings of the four speakers below and find links to some of the data referred to by some of the speakers.
