London's 50 per cent affordable housing target to be scrapped

  • Comment
New London Deputy mayor Richard Barnes (pictured) has confirmed the 50 per cent affordable housing target for all London boroughs will be ditched.
Speaking at the Buildings Future conference, at the RIBA, the former leader of GLA's Conservative Group made concrete Johnson's manifesto pledge, saying the new Mayor would instead be looking at setting borough-by-borough targets.

Barnes also added to the fears surrounding the demise of the skyscraper on the London skyline, claiming the public 'didn't like high-rise' and that for many Londoners the ideal home 'would be a village bungalow'.
