|31 Jul 2020, 2:42 p.m.||Property Development: Isle of Dogs||Lord Strasburger|
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government sought advice from officials as to whether the Westferry Printworks scheme would proceed if the Community Infrastructure Levy was applied to it; and, if so, what advice he received on this matter.
Answer (Lord Greenhalgh)
All the advice requested and received from officials on this case, other than personal information and that subject to legal professional privilege, was placed on gov.uk and in the Libraries of the House. The Planning Inspector’s report noted that if the decision was taken after the adoption of the new Local Plan and CIL schedule, the viability of the scheme might be compromised.
