Outer London Fund projects are delivered by Boroughs, in this case Sutton Council have worked in partnership with Bioregional. The regeneration team at the GLA support the borough.


There are design quality management requirements in the grant agreements between the GLA and the borough, these ensure that the GLA has the opportunity to comment on the quality of the design. There are also Design Review meetings involving the Mayor’s Design Advisory Group. These formed part of the close liaison that took place in the development of the Hackbridge project.


The GLA also facilitated meetings with Transport for London including, ahead of their agreement to the design, an onsite meeting that considered the proposed layout.
