Question

What communication have you had with Lambeth Council over the Places for People development on Coldharbour Lane, where affordable housing provision has been cut from 50% to 35%, and now includes just 13 units for social renting, and what can you do to ensure better enforcement of London Plan targets at local level?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have had no communication with Lambeth Council over this application, which is not strategic and has not been referred to me.Generally, I will oppose any forthcoming local development document from any borough council that does not generally conform to my London Plan policies on affordable housing.
