Thank you for your email of 10 July 2017 asking for information about housing developments which have been approved on Transport for London’s land.
Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Environmental Information Regulations and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold the information you require. You asked:
Can you please let me know how many housing developments have been approved on TfL land since May 2016?
Also, can you please tell me the affordable housing requirements for these developments, i.e. 30%, 40% etc?
Since May 2016 we have not submitted any planning applications and therefore have not received any planning consents (approvals) for our sites. We are adopting a number of different procurement approaches to developing our sites, however the majority of our sites will be brought forward with property developers in joint venture partnerships. Under this approach the joint venture will be responsible for securing planning consent for a site.
We have a portfolio wide target for 50 per cent of the homes on our land to be affordable. That means on some sites we will deliver more than 50 per cent and on others less than 50 per cent, however overall we expected to deliver 50 per cent affordable housing on average across our estate.
Since May 2016 we have put six sites out to market to seek a partner. They are listed below with the target levels of affordable housing for each site:
• Kidbrooke – Joint venture partnership with Triangle London Developments, 50 per cent affordable housing
• Landmark Court - Joint venture partnership with Triangle London Developments, 35 per cent affordable housing
• Blackhorse Road – currently out to market to seek a join venture partner – 50 per cent affordable housing
• Fenwick South – currently seeking a construction partner – 100 per cent affordable housing
• South Kensington - currently out to market to seek a joint venture partner – a commercial led scheme with a small number of homes, affordable housing levels subject to discussions with local planning authority
• Northwood Town - currently out to market to seek a joint venture partner – 35 per cent affordable housing
If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.
