Mayor of London, Greater London Authority

Dear Mr Slattery

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request on 17th March 2020,
relating to Elephant Park in the London Borough of Southwark.

I can confirm that this project was removed from the list on our website.
The list was originally compiled to identify estates which might seek an
exemption from the ballot requirement if funding were secured through one
of the Mayor's affordable housing funding programmes. In the event, there
was no funding application for this project and no grant has been
attributed. There is no correspondence relating to a grant application, as
there has been no such application. 

If you have any further questions relating to this matter, please contact
me, quoting the reference MGLA160320-5167
 
Yours sincerely
