Are you satisfied that in 2011/12 the average time taken in London between obtaining permission and completing all units within a scheme was 30 months? How do you intend to tackle the growing number of sites where schemes have been started, but where units remain to be completed?

The build out times for schemes will vary depending on the size of sites and the complexity of the development under construction. Some schemes will take less than 30 months, others more. If you have specific examples in mind I will ask my officers to review the reasons why delays may be occurring with the developers concerned.
