Build more houses

Londoners are facing a housing crisis.

Young people are spending more than half their salary on rent. People are seeing their mortgage costs soar. Council homes are scarce. After eight years of this Mayor, there were fewer new housing starts in London last year than in 2016.

My plan of action

My pledge to you

As Liberal Democrat Mayor, I will be a YIMBY champion. I will:

  • Back new housing of all types and monitor private as well as social builds
  • Fight for renters to ensure we continue to strengthen their rights
  • Work with councils to deliver more homes more quickly   

More policy details will be released along with the Manifesto in April.
