Answer for Lord Rogers

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Although not fully concluded, we are in the final stages of negotiation with Lord Rogers to define a consultancy role to assist with the implementation of Urban Task Force principles. In defining his role we have ensured that no conflicts of interest arise, and he will at all times operate in conformance with the GLA's Planning Code of Conduct.

Lord Rogers' involvement will bring about a new approach to developments across London, and I look forward to his close working with staff in the GLA and the Functional Bodies and with the Boroughs.
