A plan for 200,000 homes

Published: Updated:

TfL and DfT in conjunction with other government departments and relevant bodies, should use the next stage of development to set out a clear, transformative plan to turn the proposed 200,000 homes into a reality.

Strong measures to maximise the new housing enabled by the scheme should be included in the ‘London deal for Crossrail 2’–this could include the establishment of one or more development corporations to lead the masterplanning and delivery of new housing and urban realm provision, and revised planning guidance for the whole route. These measures should be considered as a potential model for improving housing deliverymore widely.
For housing provision to be a success across the whole route, the London deal for Crossrail 2 will need to have buy-in from the GLA and London boroughs along the route as well as counties and boroughs outside ofLondon which benefit from the new line. All parties will need to ensure the housing unlocked by Crossrail 2 is sustainable and meets the needs of Londoners and those in commuter regions around London.
