AnnotationSHAC prepared this report to bring together hard evidence from various sources, to reach a better understanding of the nature and extent of London's housing needs. The extent of the problem is considered in terms of the household/dwelling balance, the condition of the housing stock, and likely trends. The prospects of the major tenure groups in London in the context of public expenditure cuts and an increasing emphasis on private sector provision is examined. Case studies of the London Boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, Haringey, Harrow, and Lewisham are presented. The report presents a bleak picture for those in greatest need: the badly housed, the homeless, and new households trying to find a home. It concludes that London's housing crisis is likely to intensify. (RH).
