Shelter welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Mayor's revised early minor alterations to the London Plan, which were published for comment on 6 June 2012 , with the objective of ensuring the London Plan is consist with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) of March 2012.


London’s housing system is at a critical juncture, both in terms of the profound changes to housing policy and sub-national government brought about by the Localism Act 2011, and the wider economic and fiscal climate.
