City AM: "Gold-plated rules stop Londoners getting the homes they most want"

Link to web site

"House prices in London are soaring, with the Office for National Statistics identifying a 8.7 per cent rise in the past year alone. But on top of this, Londoners are not getting the homes they most want – terraced houses and flats. According to research we’ve just published, London’s gold-plating of national housing standards is to blame.

"The rejection of terraced streets (as opposed to multi-story estates) in London comes despite apparent support from Boris Johnson for a 'street-based urban arrangement', and the fact that conventional streets are overwhelmingly popular and can reach very high densities. (Kensington and Chelsea, for example, is the most densely populated part of the UK)."
