Executive summary

This decision seeks consent, under Section 213 of the Localism Act 20111, and Paragraph 3.2 of the London Legacy Development Corporation Governance Direction 2013 (approved by MD1227), to the Legacy Corporation’s decision to provide grant assistance of £269,000 (made up of £200,000 capital and £69,000 revenue), to Groundwork London in 2015/16 and 2016/17 for the creation of a temporary mobile community garden at Chobham Manor on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP). The grant will be funded from within the LLDC’s capital and revenue budgets, and is included in the Legacy Corporation’s Ten-Year Business Plan, which was approved by the Mayor on 31 March 2015 under MD1492. Mayoral consent is required because the value of the grant exceeds the Legacy Corporation’s delegation level for giving financial assistance by grant, as approved by DD1245. The decision is taken by the Head of Governance and Resilience in the GLA’s Corporate Management Directorate, under delegated authority from the Mayor in accordance with the Mayoral Scheme of Delegations (approved by MD1276).
