Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am committed to protecting Metropolitan Open Land (MOL). The adopted London Plan contains Policy 7.17 setting out strong protection against inappropriate development on MOL. It is my intention to carry through this strong protection into my new London Plan. But ensuring effective implementation is also crucial, which I have been doing for referable applications since I took office - please also see my answer to MQ 2017/3635.
