Housing Supplementary Planning Guidance

16 November 2012

The Mayor’s Housing Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) has now been published.

The SPG provides guidance on how to implement the housing policies in the 2011 London Plan (LP). In particular, it provides detail on how to carry forward the Mayor’s view that “providing good homes for Londoners is not just about numbers. The quality and design of homes, and the facilities provided for those living in them, are vital to ensuring good liveable neighborhoods”. It is informed by the Government’s National Planning Policy Framework and by its Housing Strategy for England.

The SPG is available to download below, as is the Mayor’s response to the comments received during the consultation on the draft document. Please note the size of the high-res file (20MB) - it may be slow to load.

Note: This SPG replaces the 2005 SPG, the 2010 Interim Housing SPG and the draft SPG Affordable Housing note.
