Sadiq Khan's 12 Most Neglected Boroughs For Affordable Homes

Updated: Feb 13

On Sadiq Khan's watch, London's housing crisis has gotten worse, not better. Despite the Mayor receiving a £4.82 billion government grant to build 116,000 affordable homes, Khan has only managed to start building a third of these homes. Of the 34,515 homes, the Mayor has started to build, only just over 12,000 have been completed. In comparison, when Boris Johnson was Mayor, he built more than 94,000 affordable homes, that's nearly 12,000 a year. It's clear Sadiq Khan has failed the countless Londoners struggling to get on the housing ladder.

Here are the 12 boroughs most neglected by Sadiq Khan's feeble effort to build affordable homes:


1) Haringey - Only 53 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Haringey - just 0.43% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.


2) Havering - Only 76 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Havering - just 0.62% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.

3) Enfield - Only 80 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Enfield - just 0.65% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.


4) Richmond Upon Thames - Only 90 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Richmond Upon Thames - just 0.73% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.

5) Kensington and Chelsea - Only 142 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Kensington and Chelsea - just 1.16% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.


6) Redbridge - Only 147 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Redbridge - just 1.20% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.






7) Hillingdon - Only 181 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Hillingdon - just 1.47% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.

8) Sutton - Only 182 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Sutton - just 1.48% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.


9) Kingston Upon Thames - Only 207 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Kingston Upon Thames - just 1.68% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.


10) Harrow - Only 217 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Harrow - just 1.77% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.

11) Merton - Only 223 affordable homes have been built by Sadiq Khan in Merton - just 1.81% of the few affordable homes the Mayor managed to build across London.
