31 July 2012 Today (1700h) is the last day for submission of objections to the changes which Boris wants to make to the 2011 London Plan. We are working on a Just Space coordinated response – see http://justspace2010.wordpress.com – and the following is what I just sent in on my own account in response to an invitation from Nicky Gavron. The summary is:
The overwhelmingly important feature of the Alterations is the weakening of London’s capacity to meet its people’s most serious housing needs. The evidence is that needs for housing among low and middle-income Londoners are becoming even more acute and that any alterations to the Plan should increase, not decrease, the emphasis on social rented housing.
