Answer for Mayoral Development Corporations

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The LLDC for the Olympic Park and proposed MDC for the huge Old Oak Common/Park Royal Opportunity Areas are important locations for strategic level coordination and planning to optimise development and regeneration benefits for London. I will work with boroughs and stakeholders to deliver London's 38 Opportunity Areas, either through collaborative partnerships, joint ventures and where the best governance model works, including MDCs. No plans for a MDC have been proposed for Thamesmead and Bexley (Erith) Riverside at this stage but my Office is working closely with Greenwich and Bexley Councils in a positive partnership arrangement to deliver positive growth here.
