Transport for London (TfL) is in the process of confirming its first batch of sites to be launched through the Greater London Authority's (GLA's) "Small Sites, Small Builders" programme, and expects to be able to make an announcement shortly.

Across public sector land, the Community Housing Hub will act as an important catalyst for Londoners who want to play a role in building their own communities. TfL and the GLA are working together on how the Community Housing Hub can increasingly support the release of appropriate land.

Given the operational constraints across TfL's landholdings and the need for significant investment to enable land to be brought forward for development, it is likely however that the vast majority of TfL's initial 10,000 homes will be delivered in partnership with leading developers and housing associations.
