Answer for Old Oak Mayoral Development Corporation

Answered By: 
The Mayor

A report was presented to the GLA's Investment and Performance Board on 20 February 2014 and published (ref: http://www.london.gov.uk/moderngov/documents/s34036/16_IPB%20Old%20Oak%20MDC_%20cover%20paper.pdf).  This paper proposed a rationale for putting forward proposals for a Mayoral Development Corporation (MDC) at Old Oak Common; a draft timetable and actions to achieve this; a preferred MDC structure and method of operation; a draft MDC boundary; approval to proceed to public consultation and to begin detailed discussions on the boundary. The paper was agreed and my Officers are now undertaking the necessary steps to establish the MDC.  These actions will include formal consultation with both the London Assembly and the public.  A target date of April 2015 has been set for the MDC to be formally established.
