Details of expenditure by programme are available in the GLA audited published on the GLA website: https://www.london.gov.uk/about-us/governance-and-spending/spending-money-wisely/annual-accounts-and-governance-statement

The GLA has contractual commitments in place with housing providers to deliver all of the remaining starts on site required to meet the affordable housing target to March 2022.  However, due to the impact of COVID-19 on the entire housebuilding sector we have requested a 12 month extension to the programme from MHCLG.
