                                              2. How can this proposal alleviate the housing crisis in the UK? This is in response to the housing crisis, so we should address this issue and how we think our economic model will help with it.
                                                1. "Less than one in ten properties in many parts of the UK are affordable to single house-buyers, according to the homeless charity Shelter. " -Once we make this garden city, how will we make it affordable to everyone?
                                                  1. restoring confidence in the housing market. invest in affordable housing, improve mortgage lending, regulate private rental sector, ensuring a mixed programme of urban regeneration and new settlements
                                                    1. strong central government leadership
                                                      1. adequate funding mechanism for 'new' settlements (one that captures land values)
                                                        1. building are of a high standard of design and sustainability
                                                  2. The Barker Review’s final report set out a range of policy recommendations for improving the functioning of the housing market:[29] Government should set out a goal for improved market affordability; additional investment to deliver additional social housing; ++++++++a Planning-gain Supplement to ensure that local communities share in the value of development;++++++++ a Regional Planning Executive to provide advice on the scale and distribution of housing required; allocation of additional land in Local Development Frameworks; a Community Infrastructure Fund to help to unlock barriers to development; and Local authorities should be allowed to “keep” the council tax receipts from new housing developments for a period of time.
                                                    1. I think the Community Infrastructure Fund would count as public money.
                                                    2. "Nine million potential buyers are renting homes, often at outrageous cost; evictions are up and, if current building rates continue, Britain will have two million too few homes by 2020."
                                                  3. Urban risk diagnostics - Plan for future
                                                    1. Cities should predict environmental risk they face
                                                      1. capacity to act
                                                        1. scale
                                                          1. pace of change
                                                            1. physical geography
                                                  4. Community lead
                                                    1. different roles
                                                      1. the patron - holder of the vision
                                                        1. the promoter - short term
                                                          1. the partners vested long term interest
                                                    2. need money for renovation
                                                      1. Patient investment
                                                        1. Garden cities took a long time to make money
                                                          1. focus on long term gain
                                                        2. RADICAL IDEA
                                                          1. We don't need new funding as we are retrofitting, adapting, reconditioning, recycling / up cycling existing built form and shaping into a modern day garden city
                                                            1. Sorry I still think we need a viable funding option.
                                                              1. Agreed, retrofitting, adapting, reconditioning, recycling all costs a lot of money and we deffinitely will need funding! We need a case study which shows where funding came from for retrofitting dwellings.
                                                                1. Found a few of these; they talk about non-profit developers, investments, developers financial incentives, community groups, realtors, business improvement associations, media, contractors, property managers, government lax on codes and tax
                                                            2. Aimee
                                                              1. economics of reusing existing housing, retrofitting and adding on to it and making it better by rearranging the internal parts, adding on balconies and improving the surrounding landscape. I could perhaps find some case studies such as Park Hill flats and see if they have been an economic success compared to demolition and building from scratch?
                                                              2. offer incentives the new homes bonus for local planning authorities, CIL, and neighbourhood planning for local people. Pat Willoughby 'Planning and Delivering New Garden Cities'

                                                                  2. Long term plan
