Mayor Boris Johnson is set to miss his affordable homes target according to papers presented at a meeting City Hall’s Homes for London board last week.
The papers show the Mayor will deliver 52,749 homes by March 2015, more than 2,000 short of his 55,000 target.
The papers also forecast that he will deliver fewer affordable homes in his second term than any Mayoral term since 2000-04.
London Assembly member Darren Johnson says the shortfall means the Mayor is on course “to break a key manifesto promise on affordable housing for the second time”.
He added: “Londoners are suffering from crushing housing costs and more and more families are being shipped out of the capital. It’s astonishing that the Mayor would be so relaxed about this abysmal record on affordable housing in the middle of such a serious crisis.
“Many of the homes he is funding aren’t even affordable for the people they’re supposed to help.”
Assembly Member Johnson’s comments come a day after the Mayor repeated his commitment to build 100,000 affordable homes over his two terms office, of which City Hall says 78,000 have already been completed.
