Thank you for your response to my question 2017/4343. Disappointingly, there isn't much detail of the 'first dibs' policy in the housing section of the draft London Plan. However, you do mention (in paragraph 4.1.6) that you will be discussing measures to ensure more new homes are available first to Londoners with major housebuilders. How will you include Londoners in need of affordable housing in your discussions about these proposals?

My proposals to make more new homes available to Londoners before anyone else are referenced in my draft Housing Strategy. Londoners have been extremely engaged with all proposals in the draft strategy during its 3-month consultation period.
