Apr 23, 2013 10:55 BST Developers are capitalising on London’s recent growth in high value residential sales. Following years of undersupply of new homes, there were 6,548 units in Central London awaiting consent in Q1 2013, compared with 3,023 units in Q4 2012 – a 116 per cent increase in the space of three months. This still leaves London far short of the Mayor’s target of producing 20,000 new homes a year.
