Boris Johnson lays out plans for an extra 10,000 homes in revised London Plan

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has announced plans to build an extra 10,000 homes in London in a revised London Plan unveiled today.

The revised plan confirms figures set out in the London Housing Strategy – adopted in October 2014 -  to build 42,000 homes a year. The increase addresses the estimated 49,000 a year London needs.

Boris Johnson said: “As the capital continues to flourish over the next few years, we will need to create hundreds of thousands of new homes and jobs and the London Plan will be crucial in allowing us to sustain our position as the best big city in the world.”

The Mayor of London’s Office said it worked with local councils to identify a third more land suitable for development than laid out in the 2011 London Plan.
