Boris' latest draft of his housing strategy, published today, doesn't throw up much for the industry to get excited about.
It continues a theme to devolve more power to the boroughs, with some talk of new three-year "delegation contracts" giving LAs in theory the freedom to choose their development partners, sites and the type of housing they build - as long as at the end of this the meet previously agreed targets with the LDA.
This makes a lot of sense in many ways - boroughs will have a much better idea of what their housing needs are than regional or central government.
Also interesting is the section on "reducing overcrowding" in London. By 2016 Boris wants to have halved "severe overcrowding in London's social housing sector by 2016". You might well ask what this means in practical terms - after all, it seems highly unlikely the blond-haired Tory will still be sitting in City Hall in eight years time.
But, anything that improves the standard of housing in the capital will of course be a good thing. Richard Blakeway, the Mayor's director of housing, told me they have a three-pronged plan of attack for tackling overcrowding.
First, pushing developers to build bigger houses (It's an obvious one when you think about it).
Secondly, improving grants for home conversions and extensions.
And thirdly, tackling "under-occupation" - one rather cute scheme I hadn't previously heard of is the Seaside and Country Home project, which aims to help those in big houses in the city move out to the country, freeing up some big townhouses. Blakeway is planning to "scale up" this programme, so watch out if you own a large house.
I suspect this is preparing the industry for the Housing Design Guide, due to be released in the summer, which seems likely to impose some kind of minimum internal space standards on private developers. This won't necessarily apply in all private schemes, but ideas being muted by the LDA and the HCA include minimum sized private units in schemes with mixed tenure housing, or certain requirements for homes receiving public funding.
The question remains however, over who is going to pick up the cost of these more spacious flats. I hope it isn't pushed on to the hard-pressed buyers.
