Will you require the publishing of a plan to remedy overcrowding for all new homes with less than three bedrooms?

Too many Londoners are having to live in unsuitable and overcrowded homes. My new London Plan contains policies that will ensure the delivery of good quality housing that meets the needs of Londoners. This includes, for the first time, a requirement for the housing size mix in new developments to have regard to local Strategic Housing Market Assessments, and a requirement for boroughs to set out the size mix of social housing needed in their areas.

The Intend to Publish London Plan has been with Government since December 2019. I urge the Government to approve the Plan as soon as possible, to provide much needed certainty, and ensure that we can build the homes that London so desperately needs.
