Question

Is it the case that you, as Mayor, are the joint custodian of land bought with protective covenants for Health and Wellbeing by predecessor organisations such as Middlesex County Council, the former Greater London Council and Local London Authorities; and if so, do you consider is it appropriate for a Borough to remove protective covenants on such Green Belt or Metropolitan Open Spaces, which determine that they could only be used for sports and leisure by the community in perpetuity, so as to allow developments on the land not in keeping with such  purposes,  claiming "very special circumstances" ?
