Answer for Mill Hill cemetery

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 Mill Hill Cemetery was not of a scale as to trigger a referral to me, and I am therefore unable to comment further.
