The Mayor


Would you agree that rolling the Empty Homes budget into the Mayor’s Housing Covenant budget line makes it more difficult for the Assembly to monitor how much money has been allocated to empty homes and gives the impression you are trying to hide you long-standing failures to deliver this programmes? Please explain your response.

Written response from the Mayor

No. I have been transparent in relation to allocations of funding and a monthly out-turn of completions, including the number of empty homes brought back into use as affordable housing is published on the GLA website. This is an unprecedented level of transparency.
