Answered By: 
The Mayor

The consultation covered S106 in general, not just in relation to affordable housing. I will ensure you are sent a copy of my response. I have suggested that, for referable applications in London still unsigned 3 months after a resolution to grant permission, that developers be given the option to refer the application to the Mayor for resolution.
