Answer for Swan Wharf, Fish Island

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My planning powers are strictly defined by the Mayor of London Order (2008), and I am only referred strategic planning applications that meet a set of criteria, primarily based on size.

Further details on my powers can be found on the Greater London Authority's website at the following link:

The planning application at Swan Wharf is not of a scale as to trigger a referral to me, and it is the responsibility of the London Legacy Development Corporation to determine.
