"The 300 acres of land we have announced for development is just the first wave," said TfL's director of commercial development Graeme Craig.

"We are currently reviewing our assets to see how many more sites we can develop, especially in outer London, to provide homes that Londoners can afford while also generating revenue that can be reinvested in the transport network. This framework marks a further major step forward in allowing us to work with leading private sector developers and housing associations on an important part of our portfolio.”

  • Balfour Beatty
  • Barratt Development / London and Quadrant Housing Association (Consortium)
  • Berkeley Group
  • The British Land Company
