Best use of the substantial land and property owned by the GLA group

03 March 2014

This meeting took place on 4 March 2014. Read the transcript here.

With former police and fire stations up for sale and Transport for London becoming a property developer on sites like the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, how will the Mayor achieve maximum value for London from the Greater London Authority (GLA) Group’s substantial land and property holdings over the decade to come?

The Budget and Performance Committee will tomorrow examine how organisations in the GLA Group plan to maximise receipts from property sales, leasing or redevelopment, and how this land can be used to build more much needed homes.

The Committee will question the following guests:

  • Sue Budden, LFEPA Director of Finance and Contractual Services
  • Ben Cameron, LFEPA Head of Property
  • Lynda McMullan, MOPAC Director of Police Resources & Performance
  • Jane Bond, MPS Director of Property Services
  • Graeme Craig, TfL Director of Commercial Development
  • Simon Powell, GLA Assistant Director for Strategic Projects and Property
  • Richard Blakeway, Deputy Mayor for Housing, Land and Property

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, 4 March from 10 am in Committee Room 5 at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).

Media and members of the public are invited to attend. The meeting can also be viewed via webcast.
