Key points from conference workshop on housing:
- Housing meeting GREED and not NEED – appalling living conditions in the Private Rented Sector.
- Not concerned about numbers of homes as much of types of housing – liveable by Londoners. Empty homes definition too tightly defined and does not reveal unused homes.
- Need for transparency on viability – to be able to see the justification/evidence.

Key points from conference workshop on social infrastructure, lifetime neighbourhoods:
- Site allocations for schools, but no local authority control over FREE SCHOOLS – the London Plan should give part/share the right with LOCAL COMMUNITY
- Definition of COMMUNITY ASSESTS need to be EXPANDED (as it is only explained as pubs) and included in the Policy and referenced in other parts of the Plan.
- Changes on health infrastructure lack CLARITY on how health issues are being assessed or addressed, and the resourcing of community based activities on health issues.
