160th CoR Plenary Session


The Members of the European Committee of the Regions held a meeting for the 160th Plenary Session on 17-18 April 2024.

“Let’s not turn a blind eye to the housing crisis in Europe. Rapid urbanization and migration are driving up housing costs, affecting low and middle-income households. But it’s not just about building more - it’s about exploring alternative solutions. Municipal rental agencies are stepping up to activate vacant housing stock and provide support to homeowners and those in housing need. That’s what I told my colleagues from cities and regions from across the EU. We must all be creative and tackle this pressing problem with diverse strategies...”, said Zdeněk Hřib at the 160th Plenary Session of the European Committee of the Regions.
