Why is there no affordable housing in West Hampstead?

In the run-up to May's Council election, Camden Labour pledged to build 6,000 new homes to help tackle the shortage of affordable housing in our area.

Yet just 6 months later, they are going back on this. They are offering only a handful of affordable homes at a key development site in West Hampstead.

Camden Council has put forward plans to redevelop the industrial site on Liddell Road (just off Maygrove Road, below the Thameslink line). Despite owning the site, the Council wants to sell it to developers with very few strings attached.

Only 4% of the new flats will be social housing, available at affordable rents.

And the council is offering ZERO flats on a shared ownership basis - the part rent, part buy option which can help people onto the hosing ladder.

"I call on Camden Council to include more affordable housing in the Liddell Road development."
