Question

Your first TfL Business Plan, published in December 2016, said, "our target is for 50 per cent of these homes to be affordable". This was a brand-new commitment as your predecessor did not mention an affordable housing target. Has that commitment had any effect on the pace of this property development work?

TfL's development programme has accelerated under my mayoralty. Last year they brought to market sites that will deliver over 1,000 homes, 50% of which will be affordable. This year TfL is on track to bring sites to market that will deliver in excess of 3,000 homes, 50% of which will be affordable.
