Transport for London Bill — New Clause 1 — Disposal of TfL Assets for Development (Disclosure) — 16 Mar 2015 at 19:45
John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare voted against requiring TfL to publish a list of non-operational sites it owns where development could occur, or is under consideration.
The majority of MPs voted against requiring Transport for London to publish a list of non-operational assets (land) which could be developed and to identify those sites being actively considered for development.
The intent of the rejected new clause, in conjunction with related amendments, appeared to be to ensure public awareness of, and consultation on, the potential disposal of land by TfL for developments which might be essential for future transport improvements.
