The Mayor's involvement

Sadiq Khan continues to approve and fund estate regeneration schemes that don't comply with his own policy requirements.

The Mayor and estate regeneration

Since Sadiq Khan was elected in May 2016 he has approved funding for the demolition of 82 estates. He has also exempted 44 estates from his own requirement to ballot residents on the demolition of their homes and is turning a blind eye to ballot papers where the option of refurbishment is absent.
He is also turning a blind eye to developers and housing associations providing inadequate rehousing offers and substituting replacement social rented housing with other affordable housing tenures, at higher rents.
