Answered By: 
The Mayor

He didn't.  I delegated my planning powers to Sir Edward Lister to make the Stage 2 decision on the application for an energy recovery facility in August 2013:

Under the arrangements set out in Article 5 of the Town and Country Planning (Mayor of London) Order 2008 the Deputy Mayor resolved to leave the decision to the local authority and not direct refusal or call in the application for his own determination.
