Answer for Greenwich Peninsula

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Greenwich Peninsula remains eminently suitable for house building and I am strongly encouraging the developers to get on with it.A small part of the permitted development is affected by the Health & Safety Executive's revised consultation zones; my planners are currently trying to ascertain the HSE's justification for this, as there appears to be no evidence of danger, and because there have been no changes to the supply and storage of gas since planning permission was granted without any objections from the HSE.
