Answered By:

Islington Council is required to send me a copy of all third party representations that have been submitted to the council regarding the development proposals. I will consider those representations before I make any decisions on the applications. I am normally unwilling to hold personal meetings with third parties on strategic planning applications, as that would leave me with no time to do anything else. It would prevent me from carrying out my strategic planning duties in a timely and effective manner. My officers, however, will be fully apprised of local concerns by the local planning authority, and will meet local groups where appropriate.
