Abstract

London’s sustainable planning aims are being affected by acute housing affordability challenges. This paper analyses growth patterns in the London region using the new 2021 census data, and tracks progress towards sustainable development policy through classifying areas by their degree of travel sustainability. The results show a dual growth trend: within Greater London, planning authorities have guided growth towards sustainable development sites on the inner-city fringe. Contrastingly in the wider region, most growth is in car dependent semi-rural locations, as many households are priced out of the most accessible inner city and outer town centre locations. Overall there is a complex picture emerging, with housing affordability problems curbing sustainable planning aims at the regional scale, in tandem with post-pandemic changes towards flexible working patterns.
