Housing Acquisition Strategy. A New Housing Policy Tool

17:00 - 18:20 (07/06/2023)

Comissions Obreres de Catalunya (CCOO)

One of the most promising ways to address housing unaffordability is the purchase of existing housing and buildings to provide more affordable housing in areas of the city with neither existing . Public stock nor land to build on. Through the Right to First Refusal, the public sector is able to stop speculative investment, preventing segregation and gentrification. A Housing Acquisition Strategy can help.
