Question

By raising the intermediate housing eligibility threshold from a household income of £61,000 to £74,000 you will increase demand for a limited supply of this type of public funded housing. How do you think this additional competition will impact on the opportunities of lower income families, those households with an income of less than £60,000, to own their own intermediate-priced home?

Of itself, the change I will propose in my draft strategy will not negatively impact on the opportunities for low income families to access intermediate housing, which should continue to be provided for households throughout the London Plan income range.
