Florence Eshalomi: Mayor announces 100 per-cent genuinely affordable homes in Lambeth

In response to the news that the Mayor of London has selected London Community Land Trust to build 100 per-cent genuinely affordable homes on a TfL site on Christchurch Road in Lambeth, local London Assembly Member, Florence Eshalomi AM said:

“I am absolutely delighted that 100 per-cent of homes on the Christchurch Road site will be genuinely affordable, and now that the successful bidder has been announced, building can start to progress.

“Freeing up TfL land for community-led housing schemes is one of the many ways the Mayor can tackle the acute housing crisis in our local area.

“It also helps to stem the tide of families, who are tied to the community, being forced out by exorbitant prices and rents.”
