Question

Will you explore opportunities early on to work with community organisations like the National Community Land Trust Network and the Just Space Network, as part of your London Land Commission? I believe many local groups would be able to help identify and bring forward many more sites for housing.

Answered By:

The Commission will be based in the GLA and governed by a Board co-chaired by myself and a Government minister. The Board will include representatives of the GLA, Department of Communities and Local Government, Local Authorities and the Department of Health.  The role that community organisations can play will be explored. The GLA will work with public bodies towards achieving its objective for a comprehensive public land database for London and to bring forward surplus land for housing and economic growth.
