London housing development is driven by frantic corporate and wealth investment activity.

New high-rise blocks have been springing up but these are overwhelmingly private and often contain empty and underutilised flats.

Meanwhile, council homes, which provide decent and affordable housing for those on low incomes, are slated for demolition or sell-offs across the capital.

This March Action on Empty Homes is hosting London borough meetings to explore housing pressure in the capital:

The next meeting will be in May on Brent on 27th May (6.30pm - 8pm).
