Homes for London

Purpose of committee

Chaired by Richard Blakeway, Deputy Mayor for Housing, Land and Property, the Homes for London Board brings together a mix of highly professional independent experts to help find creative solutions to London’s unique housing need.  Supporting and advising the Mayor on housing challenges in the capital, they will help oversee the delivery of housing programmes including the affordable homes programmes and the use of newly acquired GLA land.


The Members of the Board are:

  • Richard Blakeway (Chair)
  • Mayor Steve Bullock (Deputy Chair) (London Councils nominee)
  • Nick Salisbury (Mayoral appointee)
  • Mike Youkee (Mayoral appointee)
  • Charmaine Young CBE (Mayoral appointee)
  • Councillor Stephen Carr (London Councils nominee)



Meetings are not open to the public to reflect the accountability arrangements Parliament has put in place for the GLA, i.e. the Mayor is answerable to the Assembly through Mayor’s Question Time only after he has taken decisions. However, agendas, minutes and other papers for meetings of this Board may be accessed by date. Agendas are usually published at least two clear working days before the meeting to which they relate. Summary minutes of the meetings of the Board are published within two weeks of the meeting to which they relate.
