  • So let me get to my final point and this is crucial.

  • I appreciate you spending time with me again.

  • You know my policy here at London Real.

  • Don't bring me problems.

  • Bring me solutions.

  • That's what I tell my team every single day.

  • And that's what I'm bringing to you.

  • Anybody can bring problems.

  • Everybody knows the mayor has failed us.

  • Everyone can see that that he's not doing a good job, that he has failed to deliver on his promises that he has failed to build to build affordable housing.

  • So what's the solution?

  • Well, first of all, we must stop talking about building houses and start building houses.

  • Now, I know that seems obvious, but if you look at the last five years under your current mayor, if you look at the previous eight years on the conservative Mayor, if you look at the previous eight years before that with your Labor Party mayor, they did not build enough affordable homes.

  • They talked about it.

  • But if they had, we wouldn't have this problem.

  • So first of all, we've got to start building homes, Period.

  • That is my number.

  • One metric is your next mayor of London now How can we do it?

  • Well, there's some incredible new technology that has really been, in my opinion, honed and perfected in the past five years.

  • So maybe this wasn't an option 20 years ago, but it is an option and has been for the past five years, and it's called modular Housing.

  • And let me explain exactly what modular housing is on.

  • Let me put a picture of of one example of what modular housing looks like on the screen, and you can see an example of what modular housing looks like.

  • And let me explain exactly what it is.

  • Ah, modular home is one that's built indoors in a factory like setting.

  • So again it's built somewhere off site.

  • The finished products are covered and then transported to their new locations, where a builder assembling assembles them.

  • Ah, modular home.

  • To be clear is not a mobile home.

  • It is simply a home that's built off site, and I want to show you a couple other pictures of modular housing, and again you might see some of these pictures and say, Wow, I see that housing in places before I've seen that in our city before and maybe the local city, but you never realized it was a modular home.

  • But you can see what they look like.

  • Um, they look fantastic.

  • You see them in a lot of places in this city, but they've never been adopted for homes to be built or encouraged to be built by our government at scale.

  • Let me tell you some of the incredible benefits of a modular home and again to be clear.

  • These things can be designed and built and delivered.

  • And so that's the beautiful thing.

  • They are customizable.

  • You can literally order a single parent home with two Children.

  • You can order a two parent home.

  • You can order a home for four people for six people for eight people.

  • For one person, it can all be completely customizable.

  • They're also flexible, so you can build a modular home for one person and later convert that to a two person home to a four person home without having to rebuild.

  • Imagine that it's one of the biggest problems we face right now with affordable housing is once you build it, you can't change it later, and we know that the needs of our of our housing are constantly changing.

  • We know we constantly need to be flexible.

  • I need a four person home.

  • I need a six person home.

  • I need an eight person home.

  • I need a one person home.

  • Modular homes solve this problem Next.

  • My most favorite part about modular homes is there fast.

  • These could be built in the matter of days and weeks.

  • They could be custom built, manufactured and literally transported and placed on site, and they could be up and running in a matter of weeks.

  • It's incredible, and we can build new housing across all boroughs of London, all boroughs of London.

  • We just need the space, and we can put housing there and start solving the problems now.

  • Right now, in Ealing, they are using this solution to success on both the and you can read more about what they're doing and healing.

  • And it's incredible.

  • They're providing quick, real world housing solutions right now using this.

  • And the best part is this.

  • We can custom design the communities of our future.

  • We can literally custom design communities that have central community center hubs on things that function that I'm gonna be detail ing in my soon to be published community first policy.

  • That is all about investing in our communities in London.

  • They're going to start working on many of our problems.

  • It's gonna help us solve crime.

  • It's gonna help us, um, create more work and more jobs.

  • It's gonna help us make London safer as well.

  • So again, we've seen modular housing being used in healing to a high level of success.

  • And these things can be customized.

  • They could be built toe a very high spec as well.

  • It's incredible.

  • Um, some of the high spec that these are being built on really incredible housing that you would want to live in and they could be built quickly, and we can solve this housing problem fast.

  • I'm talking that before Christmas in 2021 we can make a serious dent in our housing problem.

  • That's a bold statement to make.

  • And I'm gonna make it on record right now.

  • Before Christmas as your next mayor of London in 2021 you will see us make a Mark Herbal Dent in the housing situation in London, something our current maker mayor has not been able to do in five years.

  • We're going to do in a matter of months, and we're going to do it with modular housing.

  • Let me say a few more things about what modular housing does and one thing that I believe is important as your next next mayor of London.

  • Whatever our housing solution, I believe that financial motive must prevail.

  • And let me be specific.

  • That means that any developers and we've got to have private, independent developers because they do a better job.

  • They know how to hold people accountable.

  • They know how to be fiscally responsible.

  • They must have a financial motive.

  • Evan.

  • They must find a way to do this for a profit so they can still create incredible structures and deliver them to, ah, high spec.

  • This is really important and one of the things that that certain governments in the past have failed, especially our later labor governments.

  • Again, modular housing could be do this.

  • They could do them.

  • They could build housing that's customized.

  • We can also take that housing, and we can relocate it if necessary.

  • That's the beauty of this.

  • We can refurbish it later on DSO We don't have to scrap all the cost you can put new interiors later, you can put new exteriors and still keep the critical infrastructure.

  • It can be reused, which means there's long term value.

  • And there's long term life in building these, which means that private contractors are incentivized to invest in these structures.

  • So again, modular housing is crucial.

  • I don't want to play for you.

  • A short video of just one example of modular housing and again this'll is something that was created by Dyson.

  • You know, one of the one of the incredible companies here in Britain, and you can just see one example here of a modular house, and this is simple, but you see it kind of being a fabricated.

  • You see how it could be built in one level or two levels or three levels.

  • It could be laid out in any way we want.

  • It also could be moved from location to location.

  • If we have space that opens up.

  • If we want to make it permanent, it could be permanent as well.

  • And again, it's high spec.

  • It's something that, honestly, any of us would be proud to live in.

  • We would be proud to have our Children grow up in these places and proud to call these places home.

  • And that's what's most important.

  • It's important that we respect the people that we build affordable homes for and again, you can see this is one of the many examples of modular homes, and again the technology is improving every single day.

  • And as technology gets better, we can provide Mawr and Mawr incredible options for our house.

So let me get to my final point and this is crucial.
