Building the homes Londoners need

IMG_5393.JPG

Caroline will tackle London’s housing crisis with an Olympic effort to build new homes by:

  • investing billions realised by continuing the Olympic Games precept to build 50,000 council homes to rent and 150,000 for sale or for private rent including rent-to-buy for first time buyers – with a City Hall building company and a skills academy to train construction workers
  • cracking down on rogue landlords who rip off private tenants, by extending mandatory registration and offering long tenancies, curbing unfair letting agent fees and giving tenants extra rights when landlords sell up

  • using the Mayor’s planning powers more effectively to encourage home building, including setting a benchmark guideline that half of housing in new developments should be affordable for the majority of Londoners
  • working with boroughs to use the greater financial muscle they now have through their housing revenue accounts to restart their own building programmes
