The Mayor of London
By Joe Bradbury Digital Editor of Housing Association Magazine
In the midst of a rapidly changing environmental landscape, the push towards sustainability and reduced emissions has become a focal point for both the Conservative and Labour parties in the UK.
In this article I delve into two key aspects: the significance of Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ) and their role in the Uxbridge by-election results, and the upcoming challenges in achieving ambitious net zero targets.
The Mayor of London has announced £10 million for ambitious councils that want to boost their role in building new homes in the capital.
Building on previous positive announcements this year – small sites and SME house builder initiatives, increased transparency and engagement on publicly-owned land – the Mayor of London has announced £10 million for ambitious councils that want to boost their role in building new homes in the capital.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and local authorities should be given greater powers to get more land into development for new homes in order to help to fix the capital’s housing crisis, according to new research.
A report, commissioned by the Mayor, investigates how land – often in a complex patchwork of different ownerships – is brought together for development in various places around the world. The research looks at the Netherlands, France, Germany, and the USA, to draw lessons for speeding up the assembly of land to deliver new homes in London.
