Answered By: 
The Mayor

My London Plan policy does seek to protect open space including playing fields.  It is the responsibility of the boroughs to identify those spaces in their borough in their development plans.  If proposals for the playing fields are referable to me, I will consider them under the terms of my plan and the borough's plan. I have no control over borough estate departments investment decisions.  I have, however, asked TfL about the nature of the property agreement with Barnet and will confirm this to you in due course.
