Running Tracks in London (3)


Mayor's Question Time


Wednesday, 23 July 2014


Question 2014/2901

Main question

Fiona Twycross

Do you only use one criterion, that of 'agreed local provision', in deciding whether to support concreting over running tracks or not? If not, what other criteria do you consider? Do they include population number projections of children and of young inner-city Londoners?


The Mayor

We don't have a range of different criteria as our position is to oppose closure unless such local agreement to replace the facilities lost can be reached. The building of any facility, replacement or otherwise, should take into account a range of factors such as population and the strategic need for that facility.
