"The homeless have been ignored for years. .... The government have complete control to be able to do something about the homeless and choose not to. Shame on them."

Ho hum - lets look at what is actually happening.

The facts: between 2011 and 2014 457,490 new homes were built in England. In 2014 planning applications for 240,000 new homes were granted.

To make this possible planning controls were relaxed and the media went crazy ....

In February 2015 the London Mayor announced

Fast tracking 28,000 new homes for Londoners in nine zones across the capital

Vast regeneration over thousands of hectares driven by 260m of new investment

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has today named London's first Housing Zones. In nine boroughs, spanning the length and breadth of the city, the new Zones will bring forward enormous regeneration and transform key areas of the capital, with 260m of new investment to deliver 28,000 much needed new homes across the capital.

London's first Housing Zones will unlock the redevelopment of 1897.42 hectares of brownfield land across the capital, the equivalent of 2,656 football pitches. The special status has been awarded to areas identified by London boroughs as key opportunity sites, to maximise development, fast track homes and deliver much needed infrastructure to boost development.  The Housing Zone status will remain until 2025.

Part of the Mayor's commitment to double housebuilding as London's population continues to boom, the first of the new Zones will create more than 56,000 construction jobs on 52 schemes across the capital. Creating first class new neighbourhoods, measures agreed within the Zones include: 5 station upgrades; 5 new schools; 4 new bridges, 2 new civic centres; a new park, a new '3G' football pitch, shops, restaurants, and libraries. They will also include more than 9,000 low cost homes, for some of the capital's most essential workers.  The areas selected will also benefit from planning focus and the release of publicly owned land for development.

Hounslow Town Centre: This 466 hectare Housing Zone is part of Hounslow's ambitious regeneration programme, designed to boost job and business growth, and to accelerate high quality house-building for residents. It is expected that the Zone will lead to the delivery of 3,478 new homes built by 2025, 1,383 of which will be affordable. The Zone is also expected to lead to the creation of almost 7,000 jobs.

Shame on them? Really ?
