Executive summary

By virtue of the Localism Act 2011 from 1 April 2012 the Homes and Communities Agency’s (”HCA”) powers to operate in Greater London will end and from that date the Greater London Authority (“GLA”) will undertake the HCA’s former role in the Capital.

There are activities that are undertaken by the HCA in relation to five capital investment programmes operating throughout England, including Greater London. The Mayor and the HCA have agreed that the HCA should continue to undertake these activities in Greater London after 1 April 2012. This means that the Mayor must delegate to the HCA the necessary legal powers to do this.

This Mayoral Decision asks the Mayor make the necessary delegations to the HCA not covered in MD1335.
