Answered By: 
The Mayor

Given my statutory planning role as Mayor and the potential for the current scheme to be revised or an alternative scheme to be referred to me, it is not appropriate for me to discuss the merits of a potential application to avoid prejudicing any decision.

However, I will suggest that my Deputy Mayor for Housing visits residents and business owners as you suggest.
