TO BE PUBLISHED December 2018
The seminar will be an opportunity to discuss the initial implementation of the Mayor of London’s Draft Housing Strategy - which seeks to develop a new ‘London Model’ for renting, diversify the homebuilding industry, and establish a £250m Land Fund for buying and preparing land for new and affordable housing - as well as further action that might be taken in this area going forward.
Delegates will also assess what more might be done to increase the amount of affordable housing coming through the planning system - focusing on key measures from the London Plan. This follows the Communities Secretary calling for a revised Plan that meets London’s housing needs, achieves home building targets and is consistent with national policy.
Further planned sessions will assess the likely impact of developments in national housing policy on London as a new Housing Minister with strong connections with London is appointed - looking at priorities from the Social Housing Green Paper, expected to be published shortly; key themes emerging from the Grenfell Tower Inquiry; and the potential impact of the Tenant Fees Bill currently progressing through Parliament, which seeks to ban letting fees paid by tenants and to cap deposits.
