This Reboot Republic podcast talks to Orla Hegarty, Assistant Professor in the school of architecture and planning UCD. We discuss the housing crisis – its causes and solutions. Orla explains the need to create affordable and climate resilient neighbourhoods, and we ask why government after government continue subsidising the property industry to the detriment of real affordable housing. Finally Orla outlines what is co-living, why it is not appropriate housing, who profits, and the impact this type of development has on land prices as well as stifling the construction of genuinely affordable housing.
