Boris Johnson MP (past staff), Mayor of London

Executive summary

The Mayor issued a direction to the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) dated 26 March 2015 that it disposes of the Southwark fire station site to Hadston, a developer committed to building a school on the site. The direction contained dates which were not practically achievable. The Mayor is therefore issuing a revised direction to LFEPA containing dates which can practically be met by LFEPA. Hadston’s offer is conditional upon obtaining satisfactory planning permission, and confirmation to LFEPA’s satisfaction that the disposal price represents the best that can reasonably be obtained. This has been reflected in the direction.
