I am determined to offer all the help I can to ensuring that this much needed redevelopment project takes place. My officers at both the GLA and TfL had been fully engaged with the previous administration over planning and transport issues and it is my intention that the same approach is taken with the new administration. I will myself be meeting with the new leader of the Council on June 25th and a series of meeting between my officers and Southwark's officers are already diarised to ensure that the momentum for regeneration is maintained.
