Answer for Old Coal Depot

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Planning applications of this size are referable to me so I can assure that they are in general conformity with the London Plan. This is a current planning application and therefore it is not appropriate for me to comment on it outside the statutory process. The application was referred to me by Hillingdon Council on 22 December 2015, and on 4 February 2016, my Deputy Mayor for Planning and Policy considered a report on this case. The comments for this case have been sent to the planning authority for consideration and can be found on the GLA website, reference D&P/2536a/01.
