The harsh facts about London’s housing crisis remain – Stephen Knight


Stephen Knight, Liberal Democrat London Assembly housing spokesperson, commenting on the revised plans by the Mayor of London to ensure 42,000 new homes are delivered in London each year said:

 

"The plans by the Mayor of London to finally see increased house building in London are sadly just a small step in the right direction.

 

"The harsh facts about London's housing crisis remain.

 

"In reality this increased target appears to be just an aspiration set by the Mayor for his successor to pick up.  Most worryingly his new target doesn't even seem to even include a specific target for affordable homes.

 

"The Mayor's record since 2008 is presiding over a city where more apartments are built for investors than homes for Londoners."
