Answer for Housing Targets

Answer for Housing Targets

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My intention is to work with boroughs to agree individual affordable housing investment targets for the period 2008/09 to 2010/11, based on the characteristics of their individual areas and their ability to deliver. I also intend in due course to abolish the 50 per cent London-wide target for affordable housing in the London Plan, but will continue to encourage London boroughs to maximise affordable housing while taking into account the full range of planning considerations.
