We have an ambitious housing programme which will provide more than 20,000 homes across the capital, with 50 per cent affordable housing on average across all sites brought to the market since May 2016. Construction has already started on some 1,500 and we have thousands of more homes coming forward. All profits from development are reinvested back into the transport network.
