No, Jules, I disagree. London has a large and growing supply/demand issue when it comes to housing. We really do just need to build MORE. This would also help re- Balance
affordability for everyone.
You also need to remember that the addition of the new Bakerloo line station on Old Kent Road
will change the location immensely - plus, that Monopoly board was created in 1936, so maybe time we accepted that times have changed.
I also find it frustrating that people are so adverse to the "affordable housing" that is targeted at middle income people/families. They are the ones who have been forgotten by campaigners and planners in central London. The only people who can realistically afford to live central long term are the poor (in council housing) and the rich (and to be honest, a lot of the so-called "rich" live in some pretty tiny places compared to your average council house - it's just that they cost a lot to rent or own, so the occupants must be "rich").
