In relation to the approved scheme, I am not in a position to recover or review a previous Mayoral decision. Most pertinently, a judicial review against the previous decision was rejected by the Courts and the decision was found to be sound. 

In relation to affordable housing, I note that application includes two review mechanisms that would revisit the viability of the scheme, to establish if there is scope to deliver more affordable housing.

I also note that if a revised application were to be submitted in the future, then I would be consulted, depending on the scale of development.
