Committee warns rising rents threaten low income Londoners

A London Assembly committee will demand Wednesday to know where traditional housing association tenants will be housed if spiraling rents in the capital price them out.
The Housing and Regeneration Committee will examine the implications of the new affordable rent model and how proposed restrictions in the London Plan might further impact the supply of new homes.
Top GLA housing officials will appear before the committee at City Hall, along with housing association chief executives Keith Exford and Liz Clarson who will answer questions about the role of housing associations and the affordable rent model.
Exford is the group CEO of Affinity Sutton and chair of the influential g15 group of housing associations. Clarson leads Housing for Women and is chair of g320.
