Your Community Housing Fund capital funding is set to end in 2024-25. What progress have you made in securing new funding from the Government for community-led housing in London?

I am deeply disappointed at the Government’s recent decision not to fund a future round of the Community Housing Fund, despite my and other partners lobbying on this issue. I will continue to make the case for a new round of dedicated funding, and my Deputy Mayor for Housing will be writing to the Government on this matter. In the meantime, I very much welcome bids for the remainder of the Community Housing Fund and for capital funding for CLH through the 2021-26 Affordable Homes Programme, for schemes that can start on site by 2026.
