The new London Housing Design Guide, launched by the Mayor of London on 8 July, consolidates and sets new minimum standards in a number of key policy areas, including space standards
Written by London architecture practice mae, the draft of the London Housing Design Guide will be open for consultation until 30 September, 2009.
Under the draft London Housing Strategy, all publicly-funded homes will need to be designed in line with the guide from 2011. The guide will also be used to initiate a debate for improved standards in private-sector homes, and may become requirements if they are incorporated into the new London Plan.
Deadline for submission of comments is 30 September 2009. For further information on the consultation process,visit lda.gov.uk/consultation
