The Council notified the GLA of the Deed of Variation request on 10 April 2017, and on 11 April 2017 my planning officers responded, requesting the relevant viability information from the Council.

The Council did not reply to this request until 21 June 2017, and only did so after further efforts by my planning officers to access the necessary viability information once we became aware via the public domain that a committee date had been scheduled for the Deed of Variation to be considered.
