ULI Europe Residential Council Launches Vision Statement
February 7, 2017
ULI’s European Residential Council was launched at the 2017 ULI Europe Conference. The Residential Council’s mission is to share best practices, lessons learnt and innovative solutions from a diverse group passionate about the creation, expansion and retention of high quality housing that is affordable for all and fits their living needs in our European cities as a key success factor for vibrant, dynamic and economically successful cities.
This paper lays out the vision of the Residential Council on “housing well”, which the Council interprets as meeting the challenges related to affordability and flexible, “fit for demand” housing stock. The paper also outlines the causes and consequences of housing affordability issues and provides aspirations for a future programme of work that the Council wishes to undertake in Europe in the next 3 years.
