TfL's property development plans will see it bring forward around 75 sites for development across the capital.  Rather than sell off the land, in the majority of cases TfL will enter joint venture partnerships to develop the sites in order to maximise revenues to reinvest in the transport network.  As TfL brings forward the sites in Westminster it will work with the borough to agree levels of affordable housing in line with local policy.

The article in the West End Extra brought together information from planning applications, including sites where the application is not being taken forward by TfL.  No decisions have yet been taken on any of these sites.
