Mayor Publishes Revised Housing Strategy for London
London Housing Strategy
According to a recent press release by the Greater London Authority, the Mayor of London has recently published a draft revised London Housing Strategy for consultation with the public. The 12 week consultation period runs out on 6th March 2012.
Since the first strategy was published in the early part of 2010 a number of reviews have taken place, with a number of areas having been identified where change is needed. In August 2011, the Mayor's initial proposals for this new strategy were published for consultation with the London Assembly and GLA Group.
It states that the Mayor's vision has two core aims - empowering people and transforming places, and it seeks to offer a comprehensive overview of housing, encompassing not just affordable housing, but housing across all tenures, and not just housing delivery programmes, but meeting housing needs in its broadest sense.
According to the Revised Housing Strategy, at the heart of the Mayor’s vision is a city where there is more affordable housing and housing is of higher quality, enabling greater opportunities for social and economic mobility.
