Answer for TfL Land

Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL owns around 2,300 hectares of land. This includes buildings, land attached to Tube stations, railways and highways, as well as substantial amounts of Green Belt and Metropolitan Open Land. This means that only a relatively small proportion of this land is available for development.

Of the sites TfL has investigated in detail, they have identified the potential to generate approximately 11,000 new homes, and activity to deliver these homes is now underway.

TfL continues to investigate further opportunities on the rest of its estate to deliver more housing.
