Luke Hanrahan has been investigating what's behind London's housing shortage and the impact it's having on those who live here.
The mayor believes the economic recovery should force developers to rethink their commitment to social housing.
The jury is still out on the Help to Buy scheme, designed to help people take their first steps on the property ladder.
There's 8m people living in London and rising, there will simply never be enough so called affordable homes for them all #capitalcrisis
Forget about building plush penthouses. Get back to building affordable housing for Londoners to live in #capitalcrisis
#capitalcrisis what about those of us working for as little as £17,000 per annum? Surely you can see we are in a dire position.
#capitalcrisis The slums of the 50's & 60's in the East End are now millionaires row! Who can afford to live there now? Only the rich!
I'd love to live on the river in Putney. Can't afford it. I live in a cheaper area. You can't always get what you want. #capitalcrisis
It'd be nice to hear talk of garden cities for the north too but job creation is more important. Less London-centric policy. #capitalcrisis
#capitalcrisis we have on average 2.700 empty homes in each borough .peopleb4profit Councillors will take back 2 use 4 local homes need
#capitalcrisis Affordable housing?! Affordable by who? Not by anyone on minimum wage! They have no chance of saving for a deposit!
Successive governments messed up social housing, right to buy was mismanaged, miles from the original social housing idea... #capitalcrisis
#capitalcrisis building more flats/houses in londons locale, will not solve crisis. Doctors schools needed first.
Most young people like me have a flat&can't afford it and whys that? Because of the lack of jobs no wonder people are moving #capitalcrisis
