The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has called-in the controversial application to redevelop the Stag Brewery site in Mortlake due to the lack of affordable housing and concerns about road traffic measures.

The plan includes 633 new homes on the old Budweiser beer site, but only 17 per cent are classed as affordable.

In a letter from the Greater London Assembly (GLA), the council was told its decision to approve a site with such low levels of affordable housing “warranted further consideration” because of the council’s “recent
underperformance in delivering affordable housing.”

It warned the proportion of affordable housing approved by the borough is “significantly below” its local plan target of 50 per cent and “represents a significant undersupply of affordable housing in the pipeline.”

It also expressed concern that the council’s decision to refuse changes to the road layout did not “adequately mitigate” the highways impact of the proposed development.
