Council-owned brownfield land in London could be used to build thousands of new homes, according to a report.

The report by consultancy Daniel Watney analysed data from the Office for National Statistics, which showed that 10,000 of 23,000 hectares of brownfield land could be suitable for new homes.

Of the 10,000 hectares, 1,123 are owned by 12 London boroughs – land which could support 157,221 new homes.

On 10 February 2015, London’s local authorities and landowners will participate in the next Sitematch London event. Join Sitematch to secure your place at the event.
