Briefing: Three tests for the next Mayor of London

By: Pete Jefferys  Published: December 2015


In 2016 London will elect a new Mayor and housing must be their top priority. Shelter will hold the candidates to account against three tests, which will show whether or not they are serious about solving the housing crisis in the capital.

Summary

To prove that they are serious about tackling London's housing crisis, Shelter is setting out three tests for the Mayoral candidates.

Our tests will prove whether or not the candidates are really facing up to the challenges of housing in London: or are just talking around the issue. As the campaign progresses we will suggest answers to these tests ourselves but we'll also keep an open mind when reviewing policies the candidates bring forward.

What matters most is that all the candidates are serious about the challenge and credible in their solutions: taking the tough decisions London needs to end the housing crisis.
