Question

The Government has announced it will parcel large publicly owned sites into smaller plots, to 'directly commission small and up-and-coming companies to build thousands of new homes', including at Old Oak Common. Following this, will you review your approach through the London Land Commission to provide similar opportunities for smaller builders on other publicly owned land across London?

Answered By:

The London Land Commission is assessing the scale of smaller sites (less than 0.25ha) and how these sites will be developed, including the role of the SME market.

We are still working with the Government on the proposals for direct commissioning at Old Oak Common.
