I have not met Berkeley Homes to discuss river crossings.


TfL has not met with Berkeley Homes to specifically discuss river crossings, however, the owner of Berkeley Homes Ltd is also the President of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, so it is very likely that he will have been present during meetings that TfL has had with them (see response to MQ 2632 /2014). 


The consultation on river crossings commenced on 7 July and will run until 12 September and all representations are welcome. It is important to capture the views of as many stakeholders as possible and we would expect a major developer like Berkeley Homes to take an interest in this consultation.
