The GLA does not collect this data. The Government’s Public Sector Progress Report, May 2019, shows progress on sites sold through the previous programme (2011 – 2015) and current programme (up to end of March 2018) for Department of Health and Social Care sites in London. Where data is available, this indicates the quickest time from grant of planning consent to start on site was nine months and the longest was three years and 11 months.
