Question

In the past, the GLA Group has disposed of public land in ways which are only accessible to larger developers or land traders. Some public authorities are experimenting with alternative disposal and procurement approaches, such as including community-led providers as joint partners, fixing land costs, and undertaking work such as due diligence and remediation to de-risk sites. Will you review the disposal processes used by the GLA Group to ensure that opportunities for community-led projects, self-build and small builders are fully explored?

I will be reviewing the disposal processes used by the GLA Group as part of the initial work of Homes for Londoners. I have already commenced a review of the role of small and medium enterprises in contributing to delivering housing on public land in London.
