London is currently facing a housing crisis and I have been clear that TfL must put its landholdings to better use to build thousands of more affordable homes. TfL's development programme has accelerated under my mayoralty.

In 2016/17, zero homes started on site. This increased to 276 homes in 17/18 including 181 homes across TfL’s A40 Sites in Ealing, and 86 homes at Holloway Road in Islington. In 2018/19, TfL submitted planning applications for 1,300 homes and started building another 46 affordable homes on the Fenwick Estate near Clapham North. Since submitting its planning application, TfL has received planning permission to build another 350 new homes in Waltham Forest at Blackhorse Road and will be starting construction on this site shortly. By March 2021, under the programme I instigated, TfL expects to have started on sites that will generate 10,000 homes.
