Abstract

This article reviews the role played by theMayor of London in planning for housing in London since the
establishment of the new London governance structure in 2000. The objectives set out by Ken Livingstone were ambitious. However while the quantity of new homes built in London has increased, the type of housing built does not meet the targets set for affordable housing and for family sized housing, most homes completed being relatively small and expensive flats for sale. The article sets out the policy changes required to ensure that the Mayor’s housing and social justice agenda is delivered.
