Question

There is a desire for both government level as well as at London level to rapidly develop modular homes to tackle housing crisis. How will this be reflected in London Plan (alterations) and what standards and criteria would you set up to ensure the quality and range of unit sizes e.g. from starter homes to larger units?

Answer for Modular Homes and London Plan

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I want to support this model of delivery as it can accelerate the construction of new homes. I am exploring how this form of housing can be effectively encouraged in my new London Plan, whilst at the same time ensuring high quality design, the provision of a range of tenures and unit sizes and achieving other planning policy objectives..
