I have been asked to put the following question to you by a member of the public:
'The impact of the cuts on the LHA plus the lack of affordable housing generally is pushing people out. I live in Vauxhall in the VNEB area where there is a huge proliferation of residential skyscrapers, the latest one, Vauxhall Sky Gardens, wants to opt out of providing ANY social housing. Their planning application approval was approved by Lambeth Council on the basis that they would provide some social housing but what can be done if they want to change this?
This is a quote from Boris ...
"The last thing we want to have in our city is a situation such as Paris where the less well-off are pushed out to the suburbs. I'll emphatically resist any attempt to recreate a London where the rich and poor cannot live together."'
