Your answer to Question 2019/8976 on 17 May 2019 indicated you are currently preparing a detailed Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) to accompany the London Plan policy that will provide additional detail on how to effectively optimise housing potential using the design led approach.

Can you indicate when you intend to publish this Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG), providing guidance on assessing appropriate housing and residential densities for new housing developments?

I will publish a draft of the supplementary planning guidance for optimising site capacity through a design-led approach in early 2020.
