Affordable home targets questioned

A London Assembly committee asks if the Mayor will hit new affordable homes target

London's affordable housing on target?

The Mayor's plans to build more affordable homes in London will be scrutinised today.

The London Assembly will ask a panel of experts if the Mayor will reach his target to build 55,000 affordable homes by 2015.

To reach his goal, around 9,000 new-build starts should have begun, but the committee says only a third of these were confirmed by the end of September.
