In my draft London Housing Strategy, I set out a package of measures to support small builders and community-led organisations to access public land and build new homes. This will include my forthcoming Small Sites, Small Builders programme, a Community-Led Housing Hub to provide opportunities to share learning and expertise and a presumption in favour of development on small sites, which is set out in my draft London Plan.
