The Mayor


In response to 2015/3352 you noted that the "Mayor already has powers to designate Development Corporations." My question was in reference to the the Productivity Plan produced by the Government in July, which promised "the government will work with mayors in London and across the country to use new powers in the Devolution Bill to use development corporations to deliver higher-density development in designated areas."

Can you please explain what these "new powers" regarding development corporations will involve?
