London is facing a housing crisis. According to recent research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) and Fifty Thousand Homes, London is losing £2.7bn annually in consumer spending due to high rents. The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) recently stated that unaffordable housing affects companies’ abilities to attract and retain staff.
