Sadiq Khan’s key policy is an ambitious target to make 50 per cent of all new homes affordable. He says he will use land owned by the Mayor and Transport for London to increase the supply of housing and tie house building to new transport infrastructure projects, including proposals such as Docklands Light Railway extensions, the Bakerloo Line extension, and Crossrail 2.
Khan says he will freeze London transport fares for four years and introduce a one-hour bus ‘Hopper’ ticket, paid for by making TfL more efficient and exploring new revenue-raising opportunities.
Khan claims he will resore neighbourhood policing, tackle gangs and knife crime, and unveil a new plan to tackle the spread of extremism.
Khan says he will pedestrianise Oxford Street and prioritise measures to improve London’s air quality.
He opposes the construction of a third runway at Heathrow Airport and promises to embark on a major tree-planting programme across London, in partnership with businesses and the public sector. [source]
