Former Biscuit Factory public hearing

In their role of making strategic planning decisions, the Mayor may occasionally take over an application, therefore becoming the local planning authority. They must then hold a public hearing before deciding whether or not to grant planning permission. 

In this instance, the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, took over the application for the redevelopment of Former Biscuit Factory 

Background to the public hearing
