Principally due to uncontrolled immigration!!

Way more people coming in than buildings are being constructed. More to the point, at least if visas were required and the same number came in, at least local Council's could plan for the construction!!

@1 - But now there's talk of up to 20,000 jobs in finance moving from the City to Paris as May goes for a red-white-and-blue Brexit. How many immigrants does it take to negate the effect on London property prices of such a migration?

Granting planning permission has no marginal cost so how about those made homeless are allowed to help themselves and build a home? Preferably right new door to their former landlord.
