The Mayor has lead responsibility for the delivery of affordable housing in London.

At Spring Statement 2018, the Chancellor announced that we will be providing London with an additional £1.67 billion from the Affordable Homes Programme to support the Mayor to build a further 26,000 affordable homes – two-third would be homes for rent, including at social rent. This has increased our investment in London to over £4.8 billion for at least 116,000 affordable homes by March 2022.
