The required design standards for new homes in London are set out in the 2016 London Plan and the Housing Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) published in March 2016. Projects funded through the Homes for Londoners 2016-21 programme are expected to meet the housing design and sustainability standards set out in the London Plan and relevant SPGs, in common with all other new development in London.

Previously, the Interim London Housing Design Guide set out the Mayor’s aspirations for the design of new housing in the capital.
