Mandatory Inclusionary Housing in London
The final recommendations for Toronto’s Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) policy are planned to go before City Council in the first half of 2021. The IZ tool has been implemented across the United States and in the United Kingdom as a way to produce new affordable housing by compelling developers to set aside a portion of their new housing units as affordable housing.
Fei Li is an Assistant Professor at the Urban Studies Institute, Georgia State University (Atlanta) with a research focus on inclusionary housing policies. She presented her research which evaluated how well IZ worked in London (UK) to generate more affordable housing and create mixed-income communities.
