Tom Copley AM responds to reports 76% of Londoners think there is a housing crisis in their area

Commenting on today’s polling from the Chartered Institute of Housing showing that 76% of Londoners think there is a housing crisis in their area, Labour London Assembly Housing Spokesperson Tom Copley AM said:


"There is now no doubt at the depth of public concern about the capital's housing crisis. Rocketing prices and a lack of affordable supply has made housing the number one issue for many Londoners.

"With the average London home now costing over half a million pounds it’s crystal clear that for many Londoners owning a home is becoming little more than a dream. Despite this the Mayor of London has consistently under delivered, presiding over a boom in safe deposit box homes for overseas investors whilst at the same time missing his affordable house building targets. With 76% of Londoners now saying there is a housing crisis in their area it’s time the Mayor woke up to the scale of the problem."
