Mayor of London: Further reading

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and Trust for London, an independent charitable foundation which aims to tackle poverty and inequality in London, have begun the recruitment of a new housing panel to shape the Capital's housing policy.

The new London Housing Panel will build on his work so far, giving up to 15 voluntary and community sector organisations a formal way to engage regularly with the Mayor, GLA, and other decision-makers on housing issues affecting Londoners.

The Panel will be made up of groups representing a wide range of perspectives - including social housing tenants, homeless households, leaseholders, students, and private renters.

It will set its own agenda, which could include estate regeneration, the private rented sector or students' experience of housing in the Capital.

Applications for the Chair and membership are now invited and will be considered by an independent selection panel. The Chair will join the Mayor's Homes for Londoners Board, to ensure the London Housing Panel's views are represented.
