How will the recommendations from the Kerslake Review ensure a joined-up approach to housebuilding across the GLA Group? Will the GLA take over the housebuilding capability of the GLA functional bodies or will it work alongside the existing departments?

The role of my recently appointed Senior Professional Lead will focus on collaboration and consistency of delivery across the GLA Group. This will be facilitated through a new sub-committee of the Homes for Londoners Board which will provide scrutiny and at an operational level, through the GLA Group Collaboration Board. The GLA Group will work collaboratively and there is no intention that the GLA will take on the housebuilding capability of the other functional bodies, but that the existing teams will work together more closely to develop a collaborative professional community across the group. The Senior Professional Lead will develop a culture of ‘peer review’ and identify the professional support necessary to deliver challenging and complex housing schemes.
