Question

Given the expertise of the Property and Commercial Development Team at Transport for London (TfL) - and their apparent ability to secure on-site affordable housing at sites such as 55 Broadway, St James's Park station - will you consider entering into a shared services arrangement between the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Transport for London (TfL) under which TfL could provide professional support to the GLA, the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) and the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA)?

There is an extensive array of property expertise across the whole of the GLA group, covering a wide range of activities and issues specific to the unique requirements of each of the functional bodies as well as those shared commonly across the group. One of the roles of the Single Property Unit, which meets regularly to share best practise and includes representation from TfL and the other functional bodies, is to maximise the use of this talent for the benefit of the whole group.
