From Newcastle University and Tyne & Wear archive museums:

With the average age of first time buyers in the UK now 37 years, and a typical mortgage deposit being around half the average income, the property market has slowed down and younger people in particular are facing a crisis in terms of the availability of affordable homes.

Join us for a panel debate chaired by Peter Hetherington of The Guardian and panel members:

Rose Gilroy : School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape
Nick Jopling : Executive Property Developer, Grainger plc
Steve Hicks : Gentoo

and representatives from the financial and charitable sectors.

Sponsored by Grainger PLC
