Answered By: 
The Mayor

My new viability officers are scrutinising viability assessments to ensure that these are consistent with my guidance and that affordable housing delivery is increased. They are supporting boroughs to take a robust approach to viability testing and are undertaking work to inform the new London Plan which will provide a new policy framework for London.
