Answered By: 
The Mayor

Transport for London (TfL) is working with the Greater London Authority (GLA) to develop a pipeline of sites for the GLA's "Small Sites, Small Builders" programme. The programme will set out a simple process to enable SME builders and community land trusts to access public sector land for development.

TfL is currently examining the feasibility of releasing the Cannon Street Road site through the programme, and expects to be able to make an announcement shortly.
