What is the future for the tenement and social housing in Scotland?
In this event – the latest in a series of quarterly debates called ‘The City Talks’ – panellists will discuss a wide range of issues relating to the future of the tenement in Scotland. Topics will include ongoing maintenance and repair, adaptability of the tenement type, the design of contemporary tenements, and the future role of housing associations.
Panellists will include:
- Annie Flint, co-author of the Tenement Handbook and the Under One Roof Website;
- Andy Wightman MSP, Green Party representative for Lothian and campaigner for reform to the legal and financial frameworks that govern common properties;
- Ann Nisbet, an architect with Ann Nisbet Studio and member of the Camphill Gate Residents Association who are working to save their Category B-listed tenement in Shawlands.
