What processes are in place at the GLA to ensure the transparent probity of planning officers? Which interests are planning officers required to declare and how is this checked? Specifically, when allocated or involved with a particular planning application are staff required to declare any interests they may have relevant to the particular case, or is only a general register kept?

Planning officers, like all staff, are bound by the GLA Code of Ethics and Standards. In addition planning officers are bound by the Planning Protocol for staff, which was approved by the Standards Committee on 14 January 2009 and endorsed by the Mayor, Head of Paid Service and Assembly.
