Answer for Metropolitan Open Land

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Since my re-election I have been consulted on 37 applications for development on land designated as Metropolitan Open Land. Of these 17 were granted consent by the local planning authority; I did not direct refusal or take over any of these applications. One was refused by the local planning authority. In sixteen cases my officers, acting under delegated authority, issued a notice that the application did not raise any strategic issues. Three applications remain undetermined.
