Departments: DVDs

Mrs. Lait: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what DVDs have been produced by her Department and its predecessor in the last 24 months; how many copies were produced; and at what cost to the public purse for development, production and distribution. [152531]

Mr. Iain Wright: The majority of the DVDs produced by the Department are provided free to stakeholders and others to assist our communications and widen the scope and effectiveness of the Department's publicity activity.

In the last 24 months DVDs produced through the communications directorate of Communities and Local Government and its predecessors were as follows:

Derelict Land: Greater London

Mr. Evennett: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment she has made of the (a) availability, (b) location and (c) size of brownfield sites in London suitable for housing development. [150249]


26 July 2007 : Column 1425W

Mr. Iain Wright: The responsibility for carrying out such an assessment lies with the Mayor of London. This work was undertaken and published in July 2005, in the London Housing Capacity Study. This study provides a comprehensive technical analysis of London’s potential for future housing growth. It was used to inform the Early Alterations to the London Plan (published December 2006) which provided a minimum target for housing provision in London from 2007-08 to 2016-17, of 30,500 additional homes per year. The study can be found at:

Almost all housing development in London takes place on brownfield land (97 per cent. in 2005). From the Mayor’s study, the distribution of identified housing capacity in London for the period 2007-08 to 2016-17 is shown in the following table. About half of identified capacity for housing in London over the next 10 years is located in seven boroughs: Newham, Tower Hamlets, Greenwich, Barnet, Redbridge, Southwark and Brent.

Note:
Discussions between the GLA and the boroughs on the identified 10-year housing capacity resulted in some changes to the study outputs. These changes are reflected in the housing targets included in the London plan (final column of the table).
Large site capacity:
Individually identified sites over 0.5 hectares.
Small site allowance:
An allowance from sites less than 0.5 hectares, based on past performance but adjusted for future identified housing opportunities and intensification.
Non self-contained:
Residential units that do not fall within the planning use class of dwelling houses.
Vacants:
Long-term vacant dwellings returning to use
