How 32,000 homes from Boris Johnson became 1,431

During the London Mayor election, Boris Johnson talked about how land owned by the London Development Agency could be used to provide 32,000 new affordable homes.

But three years on a mere 1,431 have been built.

Ealing Lib Dem councillor Gary Malcolm has more on the story over on his blog, including this quote from London Assembly member Mike Tuffrey:

The Mayor has completely failed Londoners by not delivering the promised mechanism to unlock these sites, and is now saying it may not even go ahead at all.   There is a huge chasm between what the Mayor said was possible and what actually has been achieved.
