Twitter Web App : London’s government and housing sector is calling for £5bn from Government to help support house building and deliver thousands more homes for social rent. Without this, there is a real danger that thousands of jobs in construction in London will be lost bdonline.co.uk/news/sadiq-kha…

Twitter Web App : In advance of the Chancellor’s statement tomorrow, London government, unions and our whole housing sector have joined together to demand a £5bn recovery package that will support construction, jobs and give a huge boost to social/council home building. I’ve set out what we need👇🏻 twitter.com/cityam/status/…

Twitter Web App : I've signed this letter to Priti Patel calling on her to suspend rules that prevent non-UK nationals accessing benefits and other support. If the Government doesn't do this, hundreds of the rough sleepers that we have helped into hotels during lockdown could return to the streets twitter.com/kieronjwilliam…

iPhone : When London went into lockdown we were finishing up a record-breaking year for building social and genuinely affordable homes. As we emerge from this pandemic, we must do everything we can to maintain that momentum.

iPhone : Deputy Mayor of London Tom Copley is right to say that social housing should be at the heart of plans to kickstart housebuilding, in London and across England. #BuildSocialHousing 🏠

Twitter Web App : Chris 🇪🇺🏳️‍🌈 Not existing stock - the remainder of our current programme (affordable homes that haven't been started yet). It would allow us to give higher grant rates that would enable LAR/social to be delivered rather than shared ownership

Twitter Web App : Chris 🇪🇺🏳️‍🌈 The £1.33bn element would allow us to reprofile the remaining homes within our affordable homes programme to reflect the housing need set out in the SHMA: 70% social/LAR, 20% LLR, 10% shared ownership. It would mean ~16-17k conversions within our current AHP

Twitter Web App : This is the united view of the #COVID19 Housing Delivery Taskforce I chair which has brought together City Hall, councils, house builders, housing associations, trade unions and other key players to agree a recovery plan. Our full report will be published later this month

Twitter Web App : This is a once in a century opportunity to endow local authorities with hundreds of thousands of socially rented homes, after 40 years of stocks being depleted from RTB & stabilise the construction industry. We nowt need the funds. Read from Tom Copley: cityam.com/london-needs-a…
