Answer for 50% Affordable Housing Targets: Updating local plans

Answered By: 
The Mayor

We will be consulting shortly on an Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Guidance which aims to maximise affordable housing output in the terms of the policy of the 2016 London Plan, and also to provide a clear direction of travel towards my overall strategic target for 50%, which I intend to formalise in my new London Plan.

This should provide clarity for boroughs developing their local plans.
