The pressure of London’s housing need and the impact of its growth is being felt in those authorities making up what we call, the ‘London Belt’. The London Belt is formed of 47 Local Planning Authorities, which all share pressing housing needs, a connection to London in terms of its residents commuting to London, and one common constraint to significant growth – they contain Green Belt.
This report identifies the position of authorities within the London Belt, many of which are juggling out-of-date development plans, increased housing need, duty to cooperate pressures and potentially face the difficult decision of Green Belt release. It also looks at each authorities’ political context, and whether they have Community Infrastucture Levy and Neighbourhood Plans in progress.

Fewer forward funding transactions have translated into more land deals such as Get Living London’s purchase in Glasgow of the Merchant City site of and a growing propensity for “platform” deals, particularly from overseas investors and some Registered Providers with L & Q having secured Gallagher’s strategic land business with potential for 40,000+ homes.
A more flexible stance by developers in fringe Zone 1/prime Zone 2 locations in London appears to be encouraging a number of investors in this part of the market.
