Question

Rather than insisting that 50% of each major development will be affordable housing, you have pledged to agree with each council the number of affordable homes that need to be delivered within that borough each year. What will be the basis of such an agreement and how will you ensure that this decision-making process is objective and transparent, to avoid boroughs not fulfilling their potential to save money?

Working in partnership with the London boroughs I will undertake and publish a Strategic Housing Market assessment later this year. This will assess the need for new affordable homes in London and will form the starting point of my discussions with boroughs on appropriate local targets.
