The Mayor of London is on track to fall short of his 2019-20 new housing target. Sadiq Khan promised to build between 17,000 and 23,000 new affordable houses in 2019-20, a minimum of 4,250 per quarter. But fresh statistics from the Greater London Authority (GLA) budget monitoring committee showed City Hall started builds for just 2,672 affordable homes in the first quarter. And only 37,187 houses - less than a third of the overall target - have been started as of the beginning of the second quarter.
