Answered By: 
The Mayor

The sale of land and property is used to meet a number of objectives, including financial, operational and for the purpose of delivering mayoral priorities. The GLA and its functional bodies have to operate within strict governance controls. Each case is considered individually and key disposals can be reviewed by the Single Property Unit.
