Sydenham councillor Tom Copley has been appointed the new Deputy Mayor for Housing, Sadiq Khan has announced. Tom joined the London Assembly as a Londonwide member in 2012 and became a councillor for the Sydenham ward in 2018. He will step down as an assembly member and councillor to take up his new role.
Sadiq Khan said: “As chair of the Assembly Housing committee Tom has become a leading voice in housing policy across the UK, and has rightly earned his reputation as a relentless campaigner for the rights of council tenants and those renting in the private rented sector. We’ve begun making progress fixing the housing crisis in London, including starting the highest number of new council homes in the capital in 34 years. But I know that Tom shares my ambition to go even further, working with all levels of Government to solve the housing crisis in London once and for all.”
