How can we support the right type of homes we need in the right places and help meet housing targets set by the London Plan?


The Strategic Housing Market Assessment for London has identified a need for 66,000 additional homes per year in London. To accommodate this need, the Mayor of London’s London Plan sets out a target for the borough to deliver 9,640 additional homes between 2019 and 2029. This is equivalent to 964 new homes per year over the 10-year housing target period and represents a 50% increase over Kingston’s annual housing requirement in the 2016 London Plan.

In planning for new homes, we need to ensure that we deliver more of the housing Kingston needs, including genuinely affordable homes and the right types of homes for families and a changing population. Delivering the right homes in the right places, supported by necessary infrastructure, is a key outcome for the Local Plan.

In 2019/20, over 600 additional homes were delivered in the borough, around a third of which were delivered on small sites. The rate of housing delivery in the borough has increased over the last few years, however, it has been significantly below the level now required by the London Plan.

Alongside the Further Engagement on the Local Plan, we have updated our Site Assessments evidence and are welcoming further thoughts and ideas on the sites we have identified so far.

There are around 2,900 homes consented for development, around 2,200 of which are from larger sites located in and around the main town centres of the borough.
