Question

I fully support your vision and investment in pocket homes for first-time buyers. Will these homes adhere to London Plan space standards? Is there any chance that modular buildings technology can also be used for larger units for cost effective and speedy delivery of homes? Is this something that you are looking into?

Pocket Homes meet the space standards set out in the London Plan. Precision manufacturing can support homes of a range of types, including larger units. I am supporting its greater use in a variety of ways, and looking into ways to support it further.
