London—A report out today from Dentons and the business group London First calls on the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to take control of the capital's housing crisis by making his proposed Homes for Londoners a “muscular” body.
During his election campaign, Mr Khan proposed setting up Homes for Londoners to “bring together all the Mayor's housing, planning, funding, and land powers alongside new experts to raise investment, assemble land, make sure Londoners get a fair deal from developers, and commission and construct new homes”.
Today's report, "Homes for Londoners: A blueprint for how the Mayor can deliver the homes London needs", says that City Hall must evolve from being a body that sets strategies and distributes a small amount of government money to fund housebuilding to instead becoming a more interventionist body – one that rolls up its sleeves and acquires land from other public bodies, and use its compulsory purchase powers, where appropriate, to help get more homes built.
The report sets out a blueprint for what Homes for Londoners should concentrate on, from the perspective of London business. It argues that the primary role of Homes for Londoners must be getting public land ready for development. Where practical, Homes for Londoners should assemble sites around core public land-holdings. It should set out an acceptable level of density for development, and offer land to the market with clear requirements about the mix of tenures required. Securing a new pipeline of developable land owned by, or the disposal of which is controlled by, Homes for Londoners would provide the Mayor with the ability to directly influence housebuilding and increase the speed of delivery.
Housing was the central issue of the mayoral election and Mr Khan has made it clear that building more homes, particularly affordable homes is his top priority. His manifesto promised to “tackle the housing crisis, building thousands more homes for Londoners each year”.
"In London we are falling lamentably and wilfully short of delivering the number of homes that we all need - and that is unacceptable and dangerous," said Stephen Ashworth, planning partner at Dentons. "What is proposed in our report represents a few first corrective steps: setting up Homes for Londoners to provide a focus for the Mayor's efforts, and then concentrating on making sure that public land is turned into well designed homes as soon as possible. Delivering this will need energy, conviction and muscle. As the report highlights, there is little doubt as to whether it can be achieved. The question is whether the Mayor will do it."
“The case for Homes for Londoners is clear," added Jonathan Seager, Housing Director at London First. "London must double its rate of housebuilding if it is to adequately house a growing population and keep the city competitive. A step-change in delivery is required now. In the past, the public sector has led drives to increase housebuilding. The Mayor has both the convening legitimacy and a set of powers and resources, which complement those of the boroughs, to help get more homes built.”
