Brokenshire threatens to intervene if housing concerns are not addressed

James Brokenshire repeatedly warned he has the power to intervene directly if his concerns are not addressed.
It is the first time the Ministry of Housing (MHCLG) has publicly let its views on the new London Plan be known, although the letter refers to an unpublished government response to the mayor’s consultation.
Author and academic Duncan Bowie, who was lead planner at City Hall on housing policies in the 2004 and 2008 London Plans, said the letter “causes a major problem for the mayor”.
