Please find below a letter from both councils to the MPA in response to the community’s requests for spending CIL/S106 funding arising from the multi-million pound development. It is regrettable but predictable that the local community stands to gain virtually nothing from the proceeds of this luxury development.
As the council have said in their letter, they “consider this agreement (with the RMG and GLA) to be deficient in a large number of areas. Nevertheless, we have had no choice but to sign the agreement under protest because if we had not signed, the GLA and Royal Mail Group would be able to vary the agreement in the future without reference to us as non-signatories.”
