London housing starts at just half of target figure

Fresh figures from the Greater London Authority show construction began on 2,202 homes between July and September, a slowdown on the 2,672 started between April and June. The target figure for 2019-20 is to start an average of 4,874 a quarter. A spokesperson for Mayor Sadiq Khan said he was still on track to hit his target for the year, as he did last year, as house building is generally backloaded heavily to the final two quarters, adding: “This year the mayor has delivered more than double the number of starts compared to the same period last year”.
