Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Government has re-affirmed its intention to allow for the creation of a Mayoral Development Corporation in the Lower Lea Valley, and my officials have begun discussions with officials in Government to explore the options for making this happen. It is too early to say anything about the precise nature, extent and lifetime of the Corporation's responsibilities and powers.
