Answer for Major infrastructure projects

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I would be a statutory consultee and would seek to ensure that such projects complied with my London Plan. As such my views would carry considerable material planning weight in the determination of such projects.

I would expect that my officers and I would be engaged at an early point in any major infrastructure proposals and indeed throughout the entire process of reaching a decision on such projects.
