The Mayor


In your manifesto you stated that you would "Set clear guidelines for which developments the Mayor will 'call in', including where planning has stalled, and where opportunities to deliver more new or affordable homes are being missed".

Can you provide an update on when you expect to publish these guidelines?

One of my manifesto commitments it to clearly set out the circumstances in which I would be likely to intervene in a planning application and call that application in. I will be setting out my approach on this matter in my forthcoming Housing Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) which should be consulted on in late November.
