Answer for Zoning of Stratford Station

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As you know, I am entirely and personally committed to securing the transformation of the whole Lea Valley area including Stratford and the Olympic Park in order to secure the Olympic legacy.

There is an ongoing discussion re: Stratford zoning, as you may know. TfL has agreed with Westfield that they will do a piece of work to identify who gains and loses from a re-zoning and therefore who should pay.  TfL is awaiting a response.
