4The Greater London development plan shall be treated for the purposes of this Act as a structure plan for Greater London approved under section 9 of this Act and may be altered under section 10 of this Act accordingly; and the Secretary of State may direct that any area or part of an area indicated by the plan (as originally approved under section 5 of the Act of 1962 or the corresponding provision of this Act) as an area intended for comprehensive development, redevelopment or improvement as a whole shall be treated for those purposes as an action area.

5The structure plan required by section 7 of this Act to be prepared for any area by a London borough council shall include a restatement of so much of the provisions of the Greater London development plan, with any alterations and additions consistent with the latter plan which appear to them to be necessary or expedient, as is applicable to that area.

6A London borough council shall send any report and structure plan prepared by them under the said section 7 to the Greater London Council for submission to the Secretary of State, and the Greater London Council shall send them on to the Secretary of State within such period as he may allow, with any observations of theirs thereon.

7The information on which a London borough council's policy and general proposals formulated under section 7(3) of this Act are based shall include any information which the council obtain in pursuance of a direction of the Greater London Council.
