UK CHARITABLE FOUNDATIONS PLAN TO JOINTLY FUND A CAMPAIGN FOR MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN LONDON
UK charitable foundations, Trust for London and Citizens UK plan to use £700,000 to jointly fund a campaign for more affordable housing in London, over four years.
Research from Citizens UK showed that six out of the eight biggest developers in London are not meeting the long-term strategic target of 35% affordable housing, as set out by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
According to Inside Housing, the campaign is set to achieve the following:
To increase the amount of affordable housing in the Olympic Park which involves residents in estate regeneration at Broadwater Farm in Tottenham
Tackling rogue landlords in the private rented sector
Pushing for more affordable housing at the Old Oak Common development site
Holding developers to account for the amount of affordable housing they provide
Lobbying councils and the government to improve housing for Londoners on low incomes
Deputy director of Citizens UK, Matthew Bolton, said:
“London is facing an affordable housing crisis that our local community membership experiences on a daily basis. We are excited to be working with Trust for London to turn that anger and frustration into positive community action.”
