I have written to Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. The letter requested a meeting with ministers to discuss these proposals, and highlighted my concerns with proposals for a National Standards set which could limit the GLA's ability to apply Planning policy on housing design and space standards as well as energy standards in new housing.
