Background and reports

This report from Shelter on the London housing crisis identifies that the only way to address growing homelessness is to build council housing. In recent years, targets for so-called ´affordable´ housing have led to increases in unaffordable shared ownership properties and rents at 80% market value at the expense of social housing.

The Pretty Vacant report by Action on Empty Homes identifying the problem at the root of our housing crisis. Housing has become a financial asset for the super-rich rather than a place for people to live. There are now 57,000 families in temporary accommodation in London - some will spend years there. There are 25,000 long-term empty homes in London, 46,000 so-called 'second homes' and over 70,000 properties rented out via Airbnb. In 2016, 100 billion pounds of illicit money was laundered via the London property market.
