ble housing came into light with more questions raised on the ability of the government policies to provide affordable housing (Imrie & Lees, 2014, pp. 214). Statistically, London house prices stand at 57% a figure higher than England as a whole. Despite experiencing a decline in values in the 2007/8 market crash, London has continued to manifest rising house prices in the past 17 years. Evidently, these issues raise many questions whether the government is not doing enough with regards to policy response or formulations.

Many housing policies designed in the early 20th century focused on high class housing systems leaving others with limited options. Arguably, the change in heart has left many in rentals or unsuitable housing standards prompting many questions. These pending questions triggers response not only from researchers but also different stakeholders.
